Cancellation of the Plied, Dyed & Woven Artisan Sale
With both a heavy heart and an acute sense of caution, the Plied, Dyed & Woven Committee has made the difficult decision to cancel the October 2021 PDW in-person sale. In order to run the sale successfully, we have to take many factors into account and as these issues converged, the result was a unanimous decision to cancel.
As of September 1st, we had only half of the registered artists we expected. Understandably, many of you had indicated you were simply not comfortable volunteering or attending an in-person event, due to the Covid-19 Delta surge. This meant we would not have the financial or volunteer support to hold the event, nor would we have the variety or quantity of items for sale that our customers have come to expect.
Thank you for your support of WGM’s annual sale. Over the last year, the committee worked tirelessly to bring the sale to life, even through the challenges of Covid. We certainly don’t know what the future holds, so in the meantime we wish all of you happy spinning, dyeing and weaving.
