Show news

Dear All,

Last night President Macron made an official speech with regard to the current coronavirus status and measures to be taken. We are obligated to postpone our Pour l’Amour du Fil show which was scheduled to take place from April 22nd-25th.

Due to the high number of events to re-schedule at the Parc des Expositions in Nantes, we have been granted one option only for re-scheduling our show:
from September 9th-12th, 2020.

For those who have already bought their show passes and/or have signed up to classes or workshops, these are all valid for the September show dates.
The class/workshop schedule will remain exactly as it was scheduled for April.
Should it be impossible for you to attend our show from September 9th-12th, please contact Nathalie :
in order to receive a full reimbursement.

We appreciate your support in this delicate matter and look forward to seeing you in September at the Parc des Expositions de la Beaujoire in Nantes.
