has been canceled or postponed.
It is with a heavy heart we are informing you that Blackfoot Quilt Fest will not take place on April 2, 3 & 4 2020. The CDC has advised to cancel or postpone any large gathering to help slow the spread of COVID-19. In turn the school has implemented a temporary halt on all extra curricular activities, which includes hosting The Blackfoot Quilt Fest. We are hoping that we can reschedule Quilt fest within the coming months. We are waiting on confirmation of possible dates. We will keep you informed as news progresses.
We want to thank you for your patience and support during this time. We are so sorry for any inconvenience or stress this has caused. Once we figure out what the future holds we will create a plan regarding the payment you’ve made. We hope to have a plan by the end of this week.
As for now, we give you 100% permission to quarantine yourself in your sewing room Happy sewing. Thanks again for your support and understanding. We will talk to you soon.
