We have waited as long as we could in hopes that STITCHES SoCal could happen safely; however, it is clear that we cannot proceed. Travel uncertainty and safety concerns remain an issue. Above all else, the health and safety of our students, market attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, instructors, and staff are our highest priority.
We have decided to cancel STITCHES SoCal. Please know that this decision was difficult. We apologize to everyone who was looking forward to this event. We long for the days when we can gather in person once again, but until then we continue to work on new and exciting ways for people all over the country—and the world—to have a STITCHES experience.
We have notified the exhibitors and our suppliers for this show.
We launched our first STITCHES at Home, a virtual retreat, in September and are hosting a second now. Soon we’ll announce STITCHES Expo at home, a new virtual class track and STITCHES Market experience scheduled for the same dates as STITCHES SoCal (November 6-8, 2020). Please look for an announcement about STITCHES Expo at home in the coming weeks.
Thank you again for your patience, support, and trust, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
All my best.
