I know that many will be disappointed that these events have been cancelled, however, Victorian Quilters Inc, supports the decisions made by the Member Groups.  We do not want to see members and visitors becoming ill with the corona virus.

When we are aware of other events that have been cancelled or postponed we will advise via the web site and social media.

Stay well and take care
