I am having so much fun planning for my trip. The Ravelry group is a ton of help with advice and other tips. So far my favorites are:
- Bring something to sit on
- Hand sanitizer
- Plenty of bags for purchases
- First aid kit
- Sturdy, Comfortable shoes
- If you don’t like fried food, bring your own
There is conflicting information as well: Bring cash/everyone takes credit cards; Remember to write down what you wanted from the vendor so you can go back to pick it up/there is still plenty of items on the second day/vendors tend to sell out of things; and other examples. When it comes to the conflicting information I think I’ll just have to go with my experiences; bring cash with debit as a backup and pick something up when you see it (it will not be there if you go back for it).
I think that it is really neat that there are vendors that don’t sell online as well as local vendors so I can obtain some materials that I would not be able to other wise. I am also hoping to see something new/innovative/revolutionary at the festival as well. There will be so much to learn and do, I am very excited!
