Posted by fireweedfiber on March 14, 2019 at 2:25 PM Comments comments (0)
From: Becky Hammond, Fairbanks Fiber Festival~~~ I would like to extend an invitation to the guild and anyone you think might be interested in joining us this year, October 12 and 13th at Pioneer Park. This is the 4th year we have held the festival and we are excited to be opening up the venue to a wider range of fiber related activities. We have expanded to allow other fiber stuff besides spinners and weavers such as handmade paper, quilting, sewing, embroidery, cross stitch, basketry, and other natural and synthetic fiber and tools for making fiber products. We have three different ways to join us in being a vendor. Free: The guild or person can have an educational table or booth that doesn't take in any revenue except for membership dues. We encourage this to help to get word out for your guild etc. If the guild or a person is planning to sell items, there is the table and booth option. More information in the attached vendor application. Vendors will be assigned on a 1st come first serve basis, early completed applications will get priority in assigning placement. With expanding the venue we are hoping to fill up, so best to get those applications in soon. Note: a vendor application is not considered received until it is paid in full and we have received 2 photos of your products and brief description of your merchandise. Teach a Workshop I have also attached a Workshop Application if anyone in the guild or you know of anyone who might be interested in teaching please forward this email. We would love to be able to offer a class or classes about spinning and weaving. We also have the demonstrations going on during the festival that are free to the public. If you or anyone is interested in doing one, you can submit what you can offer in the vendor application and get a discount off your vendor fee. Return the applications to this email with attn: either Vendor app or Workshop app depending on which application is attached. If you have any questions or concerns call me at 907 699 7121 or email [email protected] attn: Becky If you do not want to receive further correspondence, just let me know. Hope you will join us this year!!! Becky Hammond NOTE: Please contact Becky for more information and applications. 907 699 7121 or email [email protected] attn: Becky
