My local quilt guild, Clark County Quilters, was all set to put on another stunning display of quilts made by our members in early April.
We were all on pins and needles while we wondered if our event would have to get cancelled due to COVID-19. Almost everyone in our quilt guild falls into the high-risk category (over 60, and many with underlying health conditions). We usually get large crowds at our show and so we knew that there was a bit of a risk going forward. In the weeks leading up to our event, there were over 20 deaths in Washington State, and many more confirmed cases. The Governors of Washington and Oregon banned events of more than 250 people in many counties. Schools and universities were shut down. This was all to stop the "community spread" to hundreds and, likely, thousands of more people.
So, the leadership group of Clark County Quilters made the difficult decision to postpone our quilt show to November 12-14. Here is the postcard with the announcement of the new dates.
I hope that those who planned to attend in April can still make it to our show in November!
