Quilts, Inc has just announced that the Long Beach show, previously scheduled for July 2020 has been postponed until 2021. The specific dates are not known yet.
I have spoken to Becky Navarro, the Special Exhibits Manager. She is excited about having Backyard Escape in Long Beach in 2021. So we will continue to work with them to curate a set of pieces.
What does this mean for your Backyard Escape quilt?
- We want to have you go ahead and ship it to Virginia so we can photograph it for our catalog and include it in the hospital rotation.
- We do not know if your quilt will be in the 2021 Long Beach show at this point.
- We are curating sets of quilts as we go based on the numbers needed at the hospitals and what sells at each location.
- Our hospital venues are hopeful to start exhibiting in June.
- We appreciate your flexibility in allowing us to choose the best place(s) to show your quilt.
- We are hoping to have a beautiful virtual gallery of all the quilts sometime this summer. This will be after we get them all photographed. This should be an uplifting gallery for all of us.
