As we navigate these new circumstances and changing event schedules, our first priority is your health and safety. We are continually evaluating our upcoming events and have made changes to the following educational opportunities:
 
  • We have extended the early bird registration deadline and the payment deadline for the Quilting with Confidence Retreats.
  • The June Quilting with Confidence Retreat at the Westin Lake Las Vegas has been postponed until Sept. 3-6, 2020. There are no other changes to the retreat dates at this time.
  • The Quilting with Confidence Tour Stops in Australia have been postponed. New dates will be announced as soon as they are available.
  • We are working to finalize the 2021 tour stop schedule. April and May events will be moved to the fall and adjustments will be made to the existing fall schedule as well to accommodate these changes.
We are so disappointed to not be able to see you all in person in the upcoming weeks. We know you still want to increase your skills and confidence levels, which is why we are constantly working on new ideas and opportunities. With the help of technology, we are able to connect with you in new and amazing ways to continue bring education to you during this time of social distancing.
