Cancellation of Getaway 2020

We (your KHQS Board) are saddened to report that Getaway 2020 has been cancelled. We know how much everyone looks forward to Getaway. The Cave City Convention Center has cancelled all activities thru June and due to many scheduling conflicts, we are unable to reschedule Getaway in 2020.

This is a first for our society, in our almost 40 year history. Getaway has become the heart of our organization. It is a time to visit with friends who share our love of quilting. This is a setback for our organization and we hope you will join us in other KHQS activities as soon as safely possible.

We are discussing ways of handling all the activities that usually take place at our annual meeting at Getaway.  Our upcoming Newsletter will contain more detailed information.

Thank you for your past support of KHQS. Please know that your continued support is important to our wonderful organization. Please renew your membership on the website or renew by mail, if you prefer.
