We hope you and your family are healthy and safe. We'd like to thank you for your continued support of local shops during the pandemic. It's really not as fun being in the quilt shop without you there! Out of concern for the health and safety of our customers, employees, and local communities — and in line with recent social distancing and group gathering orders by the State of Maryland and Commonwealth of Virginia — we sadly will not be holding Quilters Quest Shop Hop in any capacity this year.
We know that this will come as an enormous disappointment to those that were planning to attend the 2020 Quilters' Quest. This is not a decision we have taken lightly and there are two overriding concerns that have caused us to make this decision at this time. First the uncertainty on the status of restrictions for large gatherings and limited capacity inside of retail locations. This announcement makes the probability of outside factors forcing us to cancel the event at the last minute much higher. Second, our primary concern is always the responsibility we have to you.
We'll keep sharing more Quilters' Quest News with you. Newsletters will continue with shop updates and new quilts. We'll update our Facebook page with shop events and Quilters' Quest information. We are all still here working to be your very best quilt shops!
