This year I volunteered to help a vendor set up her booth on Wednesday so I will have vendor access to the market for the rest of the weekend. I really enjoy watching the market come together.

Thursday night the market opens for vendors, teachers and class participants. It's a much smaller crowd than the next three days when the door opens to the general public and the muggles flood the floor. Even so there are lines at some booths and it was hard to move around the clusters of people.
A few random pictures from the market:

I learned to make stitch markers on our knitting retreat last month, so I joined the stitch marker swappers and these will be my contributions (I don't have nearly enough). I have already swapped with a few vendors last night, but more serious swapping is going to be this evening when more people show up and the official event happens.
Off to make more markers and get ready for some serious shopping!
Happy Fiber Arts Friday! Join the party on Andrea's blog, and leave me a comment!
