Search your coffers for your unused and unwanted trim, buttons, fabric and bring all that you can for trade. The design will be set up as a bazaar so bring your tables and or blankets if you wish to have your goods on the ground. We will have several contests with door prizes to be given. There will be an area for gaming.
