Festival Update


Registration deadline is TOMORROW

Just a reminder that advanced Festival registration must be postmarked by TOMORROW, March 8. If you register online, the deadline is March 12 by noon, please. If you do not make these deadlines, you can pay at the door.

You can download a PDF of the classroom assignment list here. If you’re registered for classes, please check online to see whether you are supposed to do any homework before the class and/or bring any materials. All of your classes will be detailed in the packet that you pick up at the Registration Table.

You may also want to download the Revolving Trunk Show schedule PDF file we have just posted here. If you don’t want to download a copy of each in advance, we will have printed copies available for you along with your program when you arrive.

Last week, I announced that Hog Heaven Rescue Farm would provide light fare for us both Friday and Saturday evenings. However, they are shorthanded and unable to take on any additional tasks besides the coat check and skein winding. The Four Points has agreed to offer light meals for us in addition to their two restaurants. Similar to the grab-and-go meals they provide during the lunchtime hours, this might be a perfect alternative to a heavy meal in the evening. We’ll also have popcorn, pretzels and free coffee on Friday evening and a cash bar both nights. Please be sure to join me for a cocktail on Friday and Saturday night. It will be a great way to celebrate our ninth year, and a great way to unwind.

Don’t forget your donations for the Salvation Army’s Fabric Fair.

Last, but certainly not least, don’t forget about bringing a small, handmade gift for the Friday night get-together. See you soon! 

With Warm Regards,

Barbara Grossman
