DRAWING FOR RAFFLE FOR FESTIVAL TICKETS & OVERNIGHT STAY APRIL 27TH!! Go to the Organization page for the details but this is your last opportunity to sign up! Contact the President and let her know you want a chance to win a free weekend pass and overnight stay at the Wendt University Inn in Hamilton, NY (close to the festival grounds). We're picking the winner at the planning committee's site meeting then!
TO RETURNING VENDORS: If by some chance, you've lost our earlier invitation to be a vendor in this year's festival, please contact our President immediately for the appropriate form. We are reassigning spaces now so unless there might be an occasional open spot as vendors sometimes drop out due to family issues or health reasons, you'll be out of luck for 2014.
IT'S NOT TOO EARLY TO SIGN UP FOR THE FESTIVAL WORKSHOPS Go to the Demonstrations & Workshops page under the Festival heading on the main menu for details about all 5 workshops being presented this year. Limited space so contact the instructors now to be sure you have a place in the class.
SPIRAL SPINNERS GUILD HAS VOLUNTEERED TO HELP WITH THE FIBER FLEECE SALE! The Spiral Spinners Guild from the Rome/Utica area will be located within the Fiber Fleece Sale Tent this year both days of the festival. Not only are they available to speak with our festival attendees about their own activities in the fiber arts world, but they'll be able to answer your questions about fleeces in general and some of the specifics to help you as you check out those for sale. If you are wondering about how to pick a fleece for a specific project or what to do with it once you get it home - they'll be able to answer your questions. Thanks, Spiral Spinners, for helping us with this important part of the festival!
SPONSORSHIPS are wanted! Any and all levels are available. See the Memberships & Sponsors webpage or contact our President for the list of individual items needed.
