The new dates are Friday May 18th and Saturday May 19th from noon to 7pm. Pick up of your entries is on Saturday July 7th from 9am to 4pm.

The Home and Hobby area is updating the displays and adding three craft centers where different craft techniques are available to learn this year.

Information on the volunteering to teach needlework techniques will be in future articles

 Thank you to those that have already signed up to demonstrate in our fair booth. We still need many volunteers to fill all the days at the fair. Currently all Sundays have no volunteers. Please check out the calendar at your next chapter meeting to sign up or contact your chapter calendar coordinator. Up to three demonstrators can sign up per day.  Please consult your calendars and plan to sign up at the next meeting. This is our biggest opportunity to engage with the public and share our love of the Needle Arts and provide information regarding our chapters. Please email Margi with any questions or to sign up to demonstrate at the fair.
