Boise Basin Quilt Show Cancelled
for September 25 & 26, 2020

It is with deep regret and sadness that we announce this cancellation.

The Executive Board has been listening to the CDC predictions concerning a possible upswing in the Covid-19 virus in the fall, and couple that with the uncertainty of being able to recoup the costs incurred from holding such a large undertaking as our event. Those factors contribute to the additional fact that our elderly demographic is in the higher risk category and they are the volunteers who staff the quilt show.

The Executive Board (which includes the Quilt Show Chairperson) heard from several key individuals on the Quilt Show Committee expressing the same concerns. The committee will have a meeting the end of the month to make sure all loose ends are addressed and begin plans to make the 2021 Boise Basin Quilt Show even bigger and better!


Please watch your email as we are still sending out our monthly newsletter. It may be a bit smaller, but it will give you updated information on these issues. Information can also be found on our website at
