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.


All refunds have been completed. If you did not receive a refund related to this cancellation, please contact
