Unfortunately we have to inform you that Ommel 2020 festival will be cancelled due to ongoing covid-19 situation and the new instructions from the Finnish authorities (for public events with more than 500 participants). We all feel sorry about the exceptional situation.
Earlier in the spring, we had postponed the event from early summer to a new time, July 31-August 2, 2020. As the covid-19 situation and official instructions have developed, the only way was to cancel festival for this year.
We also do appreciate your thoughts and feedback regarding future events. For a voluntary organization like Ommel ry these are difficult times, but we hope to build a strong team of new members to organize events – small and big – also in the future. Read more.
Thank you that you were planning to join us to create the best sewing festival in the world! ❤️
