2017 Deadlines And FORMS








Early Bird Registration closes December 31, 2016   Final Registration closes January 28, 2017.  These two dates affect halter and fleece/cottage fleece entries (except spin-off which is earlier), all stalls and vendors.

All Fleece and Fiber Arts competitions are being supervised by Lynn Betts this year.  While all mailings will go to the same address, it would be extremely helpful if you add the specific competition name after or below her name in the address to help properly prioritize and separate.  THIS IS CRITICAL FOR SPIN-OFF ENTRIES due to the time involved in that competition.

Spin-Off registration closes December 18, 2016 and entries are due to be received by Lynn Betts no later than Dec 24, 2016.
