Registration Confusion Clarity

If you are registering for workshops on line, when you get ready to check out please use the “Paypal Button” even if you don’t have a Paypal account. It will let you check out as a guest. If by chance you use the “Proceed To Checkout Button” be sure that you Do Not Use the FOR OFFICE ONLY BUTTON. If you use that button your registration will not be completed and will not be completed till we receive a check in the mail from you.

We are up and running

Registrations for workshops open on March 1, 2019.  We have a fantastic line up for workshops this year with something for everyone.  The Angora Rabbit show had to move to another building (#28) due to construction of new buildings on the fairgrounds (check out the fairground map for their location).  Be sure to visit them during the show.  The sheep show and sale is back on their regular schedule (Saturday & Sunday).  We have over 100 vendors (some old, some new & some moved).  Be sure to visit all of the buildings  (5 Buildings) maps for your favorite vendor.  There will be competitions (wool show and sale, skein, and garment) for you to enter or just come and see.  Kid activities and great food!  Best of all:   ADMISSION IS FREE!

Workshops and Vendors for 2019 are now listed

Workshops and Vendors for the 2019 show are now listed on the site.
