It is with heavy hearts that we must share some more difficult news. After much deliberation, the board of the Vermont Quilt Festival (VQF) has made the tough decision to cancel our much-anticipated virtual Kaffe Fassett event and, sadly, close down the VQF altogether.This was not a decision that we took lightly. We explored every possible avenue to continue the festival and provide the quilting community with the experiences and joy it has brought for over 45 years. However, due to various circumstances, the board came to the realization that it is no longer feasible for us to continue.We understand that many of you have purchased tickets for the Kaffe Fassett event, and we want to assure you that refunds will be issued promptly. We want to take this opportunity to express our heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you who has supported the VQF throughout the years. Your unwavering dedication, passion, and love for quilting have been the driving force behind our success. It is because of you that the festival has thrived for so long, creating cherished memories and fostering a vibrant quilting community.The decision to close down the VQF is undoubtedly a sad one for all of us. However, we will forever hold the memories, friendships, and shared love for quilting close to our hearts. We are grateful for the incredible journey we have had and the lasting impact that the festival has made on countless quilters and makers.Though this chapter may be coming to an end, we believe that the spirit of the VQF will live on within each and every one of you. We encourage you to continue celebrating the art of quilting, nurturing your creativity, and connecting with fellow quilters. Our collective love for this beautiful craft will continue to inspire and bring joy to the world for generations to come.Once again, we express our sincerest gratitude for your support over the years. It has been an honor and privilege to serve the quilting community, and we will forever cherish the memories we have created together.With profound sadness and heartfelt appreciation,The Board and Staff of the Vermont Quilt Festival ...
