Another first... SAFF Instructors who have also published books will be autographing them at an official SAFF book signing. - Here is an opportunity to have all those great fiber-related books signed by Rita Buchanan, Kathleen Taylor, Ann Brown, Chad Alice Hagan, Elizabeth Ravenwood/Margaret Heathman, and more! The Book Autograph Session Instructors/Authors will take place on Saturday, October 24, from 5:15 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. in Workshop #4 in McGough Arena

Vendors who carry books are being notified so they can have additional copies of books available for purchase.
