Default Sisters, OR show to be virtual

Just saw that the show in Sisters will be virtual this year,too. Starting to wonder if any shows will happen in 2020.

Thanks for letting us know. I too want to know when it will be. I thought the show was always the first Saturday in July but don't know when the virtual show will be. I got to go to Sister Quilt show a couple of years ago and it is fabulous to just be there and a little overwhelming. Quilts are hanging everywhere.

I have been fortunate to attend a few times, it is mind boggling to see all the gorgeous quilts and the town is hopping with people. The town will surely miss that great income for all is the best course of action, for sure! I will enjoy their virtual show, thanks for letting us know.

This way I can actually attend......haha

I live about 45 minutes from Sisters and never went. We tried one year we got within 10 miles of Sisters and turned back due to traffic.

Thanks for posting! I'm excited about this! I haven't attended a Sisters show and have had it on my "Someday" list for many years.

How nice that they will have something anyway...I've always wanted to attend! Got married up in OR, but never made it to Sisters!

Cool Beans! I will get to see the Sisters show. Not the same as being there, but such an amazing treat!

I believe the planners will decide against any large gatherings this year. It does give all of us a chance to go when it is virtual. Even though I am getting a bit of cabin fever I am glad that the shows are being canceled because of the safety concerns.
