We have made the difficult decision to cancel STITCHES West 2021. With COVID-19 infections on the rise, travel uncertainty and safety concerns are at the forefront of our minds.
We held out hope that this show could happen, but above all else, our highest priority must be the health and safety of everyone—the students, market attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, instructors, and staff must be. We are very sad that we will not be in Santa Clara.
We have been working on new and exciting ways for people all over the country—and the world—to have a STITCHES experience. In September and October, we hosted STITCHES at Home virtual retreats and, earlier this month, STITCHES Expo at Home with three full days of classes, a virtual Market, and special presentations. The next STITCHES Expo at Home will be February 5-7; watch for details on the main page of STITCHES.events.
We look forward to 2022, when STITCHES West will move to our new location in Sacramento, California, March 3-6. We are excited to explore downtown Sacramento and the newly remodeled Sacramento Convention Center!
Thank you again for your patience, support, and trust. We hope to see you soon!
All my best.
