Regretfully, we’ve had to make the tough decision to cancel the Focus on Book Arts Conference scheduled for July 15-19 this year. Many uncertainties, including the ongoing pandemic and the impacts of world events on our economy, have affected our conference enrollment numbers. We were really looking forward to seeing you at FOBA 2022, and we’re sad that circumstances have aligned in such a way that we’ve been forced to cancel this year’s conference.

We are thankful for all the support we have gotten from people registering and volunteering to help – thank you for wanting to be part of FOBA! We will begin preparing for the next conference right away, and we’ll let you know our plans as soon as we can.


We are issuing full refunds and you’ll receive an email within the next 1-2 days to confirm your refund has been issued. At that point, it’ll take 10-15 banking days for your funds to be available for use.

If you have not heard from us about your refund in the next day or two or have any other questions please contact us at
