Jennie Alexich expressed for all of us that one of the most wonderful things about Voices in Cloth is how many EBHQ members are involved in big and small ways. Without broad participation by the membership, it would be impossible to do a show like Voices in Cloth, and it’s truly astounding that it’s all done by volunteer effort.
Voices is a labor of love on many levels. The best “heritage” is that each show is built on those that came before, along with a healthy dose of new energy and creativity. Read about the past here...
2020 Voices in Cloth Cancelled
Unfortunately, after more than a year of planning, merely 10 days before opening day, our 2020 Voices in Cloth show had to be postponed. California residents were ordered to shelter-in-place due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Gatherings larger than 100, then 50, then 10 were not to proceed. Since our show usually generated a crowd of over 4000, we knew the show could not go on. As the pandemic continued, we realized that our proposed new show date in August would not be feasible either, so Voices was officially, sadly cancelled for 2020. We have hope for 2022.
Wow Voices in Cloth 2022 was Amazing
What a wonderful, colorful, inspiring show! All our efforts produced a community gathering that we all needed after these past 2 years.
It was so fun to see friends and what they have been working on. Our visitors were happy, the vendors were happy, our members had smiles in their eyes because they wore their masks!
