Many of our vendors from 2017 and prior years have already reserved space at the 2018 festival. All returning vendors should have received a registration form at the festival or via email, but the 2018 Member_Vendor registration form is also available for download. (Please note – this form is only for returning vendors and returning guilds.) Guaranteed space at a reduced rate is available until February 15, 2018. Thereafter, available space will be offered to new vendors, and reduced fees for early registration will no longer be available.
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. Our returning vendors have until February 15th to reserve their booth space, and after that point we will evaluate the products represented and begin reaching out to people who have expressed an interest in becoming a vendor. We give priority to people with unusual and high-quality products, people who raise their own animals and are willing to showcase their animals, and 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 email@example.com.
