Dear Gammill family,
It is with disappointment that we announce in-person Quilting with Confidence events will not take place in 2020. This decision impacts all tour stops and retreats scheduled for 2020 in the U.S., Canada, Australia, and England.
This is not a decision we have taken lightly. We appreciate all of you who provided feedback in the recent survey for 2020 events. As a whole, attendees overwhelming expressed they would not be comfortable attending an event in 2020.
We know this is the right decision to make based on the information we have today to prioritize the health and safety of our Gammill family.
We understand that all of you were looking forward to increasing your skills and confidence levels. That is why as we announce this disappointing news, we are excited to share a new offering of virtual learning opportunities. We hope you will join us in participating in this exciting new educational venture that launched in June. Already, there are more than 20 online classes to select from plus, complete recordings from the 2019 Quilting with Confidence tour are now available.
In addition, we will be working on a new tour and retreat schedule for 2021 and 2022 to bring education to you close to home. You will be able to apply any deposits for 2020 to the 2021 or 2022 events. Because our venues have been great about rescheduling to 2021 but are insistent on keeping payments we have made to them we are unable to refund deposits. We look forward to seeing you in 2021 and thank you for your understanding during these challenging times.
We are disappointed that we are unable to see you in person in 2020 but with the help of technology, we look forward to connecting with you in this new and amazing way and continuing to bring you education during this time of social distancing.
