Indian Summer Quilt Show is cancelled!
ISQSC 2016 Cancelled Due to Homecoming
This past week it was confirmed that West Fargo High School has rescheduled their homecoming game and activities to September 23 and 24, 2016, the same days as the Indian Summer Quilt Show and Conference.
Our venue, Veterans Memorial Arena, shares the parking lot with the high school and football field. The homecoming fans start arriving on Thursday to secure parking, and school buses take over the parking lot on Friday and Saturday. This date change causes major issues with parking, security and getting people to the quilt show and conference.
We pride ourselves on a long history of successful quilt shows and conferences, and wish to keep the integrity of ISQSC intact. With the issues we face, we believe the quality of our show and the experience for our vendors and participants will be compromised.
After much deliberation and with no other suitable venues available, the Indian Summer Quilt Show and Conference Committee and the Quilters’ Guild of North Dakota Board of Directors have made the very difficult decision to cancel the show and conference for 2016.
Although we regret this cancellation, we do plan to continue with classes by the French General. Watch for more information coming soon!
