We are very sorry about disappointing the exhibitors, visitors and artists by this announcement. While we have been hoping for the pandemic to calm down enough for us to continue with preparations of Prague Patchwork Meeting in 2021, last figures showing renewed increase in cases, local lockdowns and ongoing travel restrictions even some again closed borders unfortunately directly impact international events of this scale. Requirements to have visitors split in groups of 500, compulsory masks and restrictions on moving between areas make it impossible for us to host PPM at the current venue of Wellness Hotel STEP. We do not want to raise expectations and promise something we may not be able to deliver. Having incurred enormous losses earlier this year, it might mean just additional expenses for all parties and we would like to avoid that. While we remain hopeful, that a vaccine will be developed soon, judging by the current situation, spring 2021 appears to be way too soon. We decided not to go down the virtual route as we have been trying for years to connect visitors with the artists and believe a close up and personal experience is absolutely crucial for textile art. We were also able to offer workshops, presentations of new techniques and materials and close contact with customers, experiences which are not transferable virtually. Prague Patchwork Meeting is shifting to a non-active status, but the textile art and creativity remains strong among all of us. We are looking forward to a time when it will be possible to exhibit all the pieces created during the pandemic to a wider public. We would like to thank you all for the 15 year long support and are hoping to see you again at some point.
