Weavers Guild of Minnesota presents Fiber Fair 2017 | November 10-12, 2017 at the Northrup King Building
Hours: Friday: 10am to 7pm
Saturday: 10am to 5pm
Sunday: 12pm-4pm

Location: Studio #332 Northrup King Building
1500 Jackson Street NE, Minneapolis

Volunteerism: To keep event costs low, WGM requires all Fiber Fair participants to complete two volunteer shifts during Fiber Fair. Volunteer shifts include acting as building guides, performing weaving and spinning demonstrations, helping with display set-up and tear-down, and working register checkout and bagging. Shifts may be staffed by you or your designated alternate.

The earlier you register, the better your chances of getting your preferred volunteer shifts. If you are unable to work a shift you committed to, you will need to find your own replacement. As with all WGM programs, reasonable accommodation will be made for individuals with disabilities; Please contact the Fiber Fair co-chairs to request accommodations.

New in 2017: Participants age 70 and over may opt to complete one volunteer shift instead of two as required for other sellers. Please notify the Fiber Fair co-chairs or WGM.
