Here we go again … Mother Nature Rules the Roost
With the COVID-19 pandemic on the upswing here in the United States, we once again find it prudent to follow our instincts with regards to everyone’s health and well-being. We are officially cancelling / postponing the following onsite quilt festivals: the Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza (mid-September), which will return in 2021 to the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center, Oaks, PA, and the Pacific International Quilt Festival (mid-October) that will return to the Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, CA in 2021.
However, Mancuso Show Management will be moving ahead with two more online quilt festivals (OLQF) in 2020.
World Quilt New England and the Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza will be combined into our second OLQF to be held virtually August 12-15, 2020.
Our Pacific International Quilt Festival will be presented as our third online quilt festival (OLQF) and will be held virtually October 14-17, 2020.
Our company has just completed our first online quilt festival (OLQF) to a very enthusiastic response. Quilters loved this format! So, we are ready to take this virtual experience up to the next level. Both virtual events will be held Wednesday through Saturday to allow an additional day to meet the high-demand for online workshops and lectures. This platform is also going to be offering sponsored prize money quilt competitions, special exhibitions, very special demonstrations, fun activities, and, of course, the always popular Merchants’ Malls. Stay tuned!
