MARION CHAMBER OF COMMERCE: Quilting event cancelled.
Marion Chamber of Commerce recently issued the following announcement.
Quilting event cancelled. More inclusive Fiber Arts Fair being planned. Over the past few days we have deliberated and examined the progress that had been made on the inaugural special event Life in Pieces: A Quilting Event. We detected much enthusiasm for the event in the way of attendees. We had, at this point, 4 vendors and 5 sponsors. Kind of pointless to have an event with many attendees but not a whole lot to see and experience. The short turnaround time could be the downfall of participation. So we have decided to pull the plug for this year. We have discussed working and planning a year out. Perhaps changing the venue. And including other fiber arts in the event. We are excited to prepare for a spectacular show that encompasses quilting, fiber arts, sewing, etc. Keep your eyes peeled and your ears perked up for upcoming date and details
