MEMBERS' MARKET REGISTRATION
Florida Tropical Weavers Guild Conference March 19 - 22, 2015

MEMBERS' MARKET provides an opportunity for individual Guild members to sell items they have created. Only conference-attending FTWG members are eligible to participate.

This year, table space is $10 per table or $5 per 1/2 table.

All entries must be approved by the Members' Market Chair. You may not compete with vendors with the items you sell (e.g. cones of yarn, extra shuttles, etc from your personal stash). Items created by members are always allowed.
