Returning Vendors and invited vendors
Many of our vendors from 2017 and prior years have already reserved space at the 2018 festival. Guaranteed space at a reduced rate was offered to returning vendors until February 15, 2018. Early registration is now closed, and we have offered a few open spaces to prospective vendors on our waiting list. There is still a chance that the prospective vendors will be unable to come, but we have to say that all booth spaces have been claimed at this point. Cancellations may still occur, and if they do, prospective vendors on the waiting list will be notified via email. Therefore, the 2018 Member_Vendor registration form remains available for download.
The CNY Fiber Arts Festival often has openings for new vendors and we are always interested in adding fiber-related products and services that are unusual or not currently represented at the festival. We maintain a waiting list of prospective vendors and we ask that individuals wishing to become vendors either contact us via email with information about the products they offer or download and complete the 2018 Prospective Vendor Form. We ask that prospective vendors not send any payment until they are notified that they can be accommodated. To provide variety for our visitors and to promote sales for our vendors, we evaluate the products represented by prospective vendors and reach out to people accordingly. We give priority to people with unusual and high-quality products, to people who raise their own animals and are willing to showcase their animals, and to people from Central NY. We are also interested in a small number of vendors with non-fiber products that might be of interest to our visitors, such as hand-woven baskets or quilts.
Please do not hesitate to contact Pam with any questions about the forms or the process. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
