These are interesting times aren't they?!
Locally here we have the full spectrum of reactions to this pandemic by quilt clubs and guilds:
- ACQ quickly moved from in person meetings to zoom fairly early in the pandemic and has begun a drive by for pick up and drop off of charity quilts and kits etc
- PPK has pretty much taken a hiatus until recently, now they are beginning to plan small socially distanced gatherings using sign up genius to ensure numbers of attendees stay low and masks are worn
- CRQC moved to in person meetings as soon as they were allowed and included food consumption in many of the planned activities which means masks are removed to eat.
So I guess at least there is an option here locally to suit every persons needs/wants/expectations.
I personally made the decision to not participate in any club or guild this year because they are non-profit organizations with very little overheads and could survive the pandemic relatively easily, so I felt the money was better spent at local quilt shops and other small businesses that need loyal customers to stay afloat. I also have a medical diagnosis that increases my risk of nasty consequences from Covid so I have no intention of attending any in person gatherings until a vaccine is widely available.
What's going on in your neck of the woods?
