How else can I assist with the Seminar?

Lots of willing hands are needed to make Seminar run smoothly.  Several volunteer opportunities are available.  Even if you can only find an hour or two, volunteers are needed before and after classes.  If you would like to help (e.g., at the Exhibit, meals, boutique, etc.), please indicate your interest on your registration form.  There are a variety of tasks and we will help you find a job that will work for you!  If your schedule unexpectedly opens up later, you can also sign up to help when you check in at Seminar.

What type of clothing should I pack?
Comfortable, casual clothing is recommended, and layers like a light weight jacket, sweater or a shawl would be appropriate if needed for air-conditioned rooms.

What supplies should I pack?
Class descriptions include a list of supplies you will need.  You will also receive a letter from your teacher approximately 6 weeks or so before seminar - this may list additional supplies or include revised information on what to bring. Otherwise bring your normal stitching supplies.
