SATURDAY APRIL 29, 2017 AND SATURDAY OCTOBER 21, 2017 FROM 10 TO 3 DELMONT FIRE HALL DELMONT, PA 15626
random information about our show
6/5/17 so we're getting swamped with applications for the october 21, 2017 show and i have selected the dates for the 2018 show. they are april 21 and october 20, 2018. i have chosen to keep it at the delmont fire hall for many reasons. i like supporting the volunteer fire company, it's a great location, free parking, handicapped accessible. i am offering outside spaces from here on in due to space constraints. if anyone wants more info, please contact: toni ritchey-ridella firstname.lastname@example.org
4/26/17 THREE DAYS! vendors have been changed around a little, due to various issues. we're going to have so much fun! the bike will be there for you to take a selfie with and her name will be revealed. still taking names - a prize for the winner! this is gonna be fun!!!
4/7/17 THREE weeks away! a few vendor changes have been made due to circumstances beyond their control but we know you won't be disappointed. i mentioned in the february blog post below that we may be shearing that day but that didn't pan out but i am purchasing a beautiful ewe from Prairie Girl and she will be joining us for the show. and the fiber-bombed bike is all done and she will be on display for all to see and enjoy.
2/3/17 less than three months to the april 29th show and things are looking super! not only do we have a few new vendors but i'm working on having my shearer there demonstrating shearing on a couple of my sheep. details aren't nailed down as of yet but i would say the demo will be somewhere around 1 after we figure out the logistics. if you've never actually seen sheep being sheared, you'll love to see how it's done!
you'll notice i have begun featuring a vendor on this site and on the Facebook page as well. "raggzfiberartandwoolmarket"
stay tuned next week for yet another featured vendor!
12/9/16 forgot to post how wonderful the october show was. plans are in the works for the 2017 shows. the dates are saturdays - april 29 and october 21 - from 10 to 3. lots of wonderful vendors returning plus some new ones! we will continue with the give and take table, door prizes, and demonstrations. some day i would love to have a place to add classes but as of now, this will have to do.
8/8/16 now that the steel valley yarn crawl is complete, work is getting done to complete plans for the october 22 fiber affair. i've had a few vendors who are unable to attend due to a conflict in schedule; however i have some brandy-new vendors who havent been seen as of yet, which is exciting to me. love showcasing new, local talent - i think we all do.
anyhow, stay tuned and check out the Facebook page of the same name for updates as well.
6/27/16 applications were just emailed out. if i do not have your email and you are interested, please contact me.
this year i have a few new things planned. each vendor is donating an item, so at specified times during the show, we will be drawing names. the times have not yet been determined. winner must be present to win. folks will be stationed at the entrance to hand out one ticket to each customer. this way, we will have a better idea of how many attendees we have, which is always helpful.
also the show will be an hour shorter - it will run from 10 to 3 instead of 4.
i am toying with the idea of having someone there to wind yarn, which seems to work well at the pittsburgh knit and crochet.
we will continue with the give and take table, which went very well last time. bring your patterns, yarn, needles, hooks, works in progress, whatever that you no longer want. just about everything went.
looking forward to new and repeat vendors as well as new and repeat customers! t
