What Do Do When Your Quilt Show Is Cancelled

 

Suggestions that will save you money

 

  • Buy some fabric from your local quilt shop for your fabric library. You don't have to "need" it, you just must love it! Chat up the store owner about trends in fabrics and colors to learn what you would have learned at a quilt show.

  • Take an online class. You would have taken a class at the quilt show anyway.

  • Donate some of what you would have spent to your Guild. They are certainly suffering. Or make something for community service.
  • Add a new tool. Maybe something you have always worked around in the past such as perfect circles.

Suggestions that are free

 

  • Join a new list or Facebook group online.
  • Wander through a website (such as QuiltingHub) and learn all that it has to offer. For example, use the Quilters' Trip Planner™ to plan for next year's trip.
  • Email someone from your Guild that you've always admired and ask them a good discussion question. Remember, she is probably home as well.
  • Make something you would never try. Being at home is a good time to learn from failure. Try your nemesis – such as curves!
  • Host a reunion of your quilt show friends over video conferencing. Do Show ‘n Tell or sip wine together.
  • Volunteer for a committee for next year's Show. They need you!!
