Thank you for having the vision to put on this new event that is open to
everyone and gives us an opening to try new things.

Weaver, as this is her church and place of employment, and why we are
getting this site for free.
> Since there is no cost to Cynnabar I decided not to charge a gate fee
but to collect donations at the door and at the stash exchange table, all to
be donated to the church. I have no idea how many people to expect but I
hope everyone can give between $3 and $5. I do not expect to raise the full
value of what this site is worth ($500+?), but to present some amount of
money as a symbol of our appreciation. This may work out to be a good site
for other small events!

envisioned a small day of wool workshops that I could hold at my small
school for 10-20 people, but after speaking with others and finding this
fabulous site the concept grew. Not knowing how many people to expect I
wanted to make the event successful with any rate of attendance, and to be
an easy, no fuss event for my first try at being an event steward. (So far
so good!) Also, considering the realities of the rising costs of other
events its is nice to treat ourselves to a free event now and then. Why
worry about making money if we don't have to?
