June 21-23, 2013 at the Lake County Fairgrounds, Grayslake, IL

introducing the exhibitors of our 2013 market! We strive to put together an excellent and diverse Marketplace just for you! We look for a selection of the best products: from fiber shorn right off the sheep to handmade heirloom clothing and decorative art - and EVERYTHING in between. We are fiber artists ourselves, and we know that to see a home grown, unique product in person - to be able to touch and savor - is a rare treat! Note: we are still receiving applications, the list will continue to grow...
