Below is the content we displayed and the offer we made at the beginning of the 'virtual' event.    It was all a very different way of doing things - it was very strange not to be loading and unloading vans and then spending two days building the stand, and particularly strange not to see anyone - but obviously there was no alternative.   Although there will never be a substitute for the real thing, the organisers (Upper Street Events) have to be congratulated for creating such a successful replacement for the Festival of Quilts in these very difficult times.   Because it was a 'virtual' version of the show, many of the features will continue to be available on the FOQ website, including lectures, projects and the galleries.   You will also be able to discover the winners of the various awards.   Go and enjoy!!

Art Van Go stand

It's Festival of Quilts time!!

"We're ready, the crocs are back out, and normally we'd be ready to welcome you to the ART VAN GO stand but this time we just won’t get to see you all!!   

In this 'unprecedented time' we are all so grateful to Upper Street Events for organising Beyond the Festival of Quilts so we can at least get a flavour of what we would normally be experiencing.

You may not be getting the full 'buzz' of the show but you can get 5% off ART VAN GO orders placed within the duration of Beyond the Festival of Quilts!
Not only that, but one lucky customer will receive an ART VAN GO voucher for £100 of goodies!!

Just quote BFOQ20 at the checkout or on the phone to get your discount and be in with a chance to get your hands on all that lovely stuff!!!!"

The 5% offer is available on all orders placed between 12 noon on Thurs 30th July and midnight on Sunday 2nd August and will only apply if the code is used. A customer who has quoted the correct code during that time will be chosen at random and awarded the £100 voucher.   The code is BFOQ20

And the Winner is......

After the event the selection was made and the £100 voucher was awarded to Ann L in Somerset.    Congratulations Ann!!!   Whoop! Whoop!!!

Ann can spend the voucher on any of the products in the shop and/or having cards etc printed.   Enjoy!

You might be wondering what we were doing at Beyond the Festival of Quilts anyway!!   Weren't we supposed to be stopping ART VAN GO??

We really thought that The Knitting & Stitching Show in Harrogate last December was our farewell to the shows - our plan was to wind down during the first few months of 2020.

Well, along with so many other things Covid 19 has put that on hold for a while. 
After all these years of ART VAN GO we'd much rather go out with a bang than with a whimper, so the mail-order side of AVG is continuing for the time-being.

And anyway, ART VAN GO is a big thing to stop!!
