HHFF 2016 Entertainment

Many vendors demonstrate their skills in their booths, sharing fiber arts or all kinds.  Most of us love answering questions and talking about our skills, so don't be afraid to ask!

If you're not a vendor and would like to volunteer to demonstrate your skills to entertain the festival visitors, please contact Janie at:  We have areas set aside for demonstration use through out the weekend.
