Planning is well underway for our next show with the theme GARDEN PARTY. Unfortunately due to the many uncertainties surrounding the Covid 19 situation this year, we have made the difficult decision not to hold a show in 2020.

 

It takes a lot of work and pre-planning to put on the show, and we do not want to put our members, attendees, and vendors at risk with a large gathering until we know we can do it safely.

 

So we will plan for an even better GARDEN PARTY the third weekend of September 2021. Below are the categories which will be available for entry. Look for online registration  to be available after the June Guild meeting 2021.
