  1. my only tip would be look first then shop. It’s what I’d do at a quilt show.

    Pockets or an over the shoulder bag for yarn so you can knit on the go 🙂
    Lovely yarn!

  3. Jetro says:

    I like Sheep!! I think you should take me with you and let me show the sheep what I do with all the wool they get shaved off!!! 🙂

  4. Kari says:

    Water and a list. Someone willing to carry everything for you might be nice too (:

  5. Kerri says:

    Travel size sunscreen!! Keep it with you so you can reapply regularly, not in the car. And preferably store it in a waterproof/spillproof bag. And stay hydrated, even though the weather is looking fairly cool!

  6. Lynne says:

    Comfortable walking shoes, dress in layers, carry a bag or backpack that leaves your hands free. Keep your wallet in a small front pack or cross-chest purse, or in your pocket.

  7. Denisha says:

    Be sure to take breaks while you are at the festival. It can prevent burn out.

  8. Rich says:

    Wear comfortable shoes and sunscreen. Carry bottled water.

  9. Katie says:

    Set a spending limit and stick to it! It may be tempting to spend your entire bank account, but you probably shouldn’t.

  10. Mel says:

    I am looking up vendors in advance then researching online and planning which places I must go to first. Enjoy your day try not to be overwhelmed.

  11. Josephine says:

    Bring a set amount of cash, so you don’t overspend.

  12. Geea says:

    Bring a list of projects in your queue, and make sure to buy enough yarn for them.

  13. Christi says:

    Definitely set a budget for yourself, and have an idea of what you might want to buy.
