Vendor Fair in Redmond WA (near Seattle)

May 11 @ 11:00 am 3:00 pm Pacific Time: Seattle

This Saturday from 11 am to 3 pm Sponsor NW Art Glass, 9003 151st Avenue NE in Redmond WA, has invited the Guild to hold their first Seattle area Vendor Fair in the upstairs classroom. (And yes, the 520 bridge between Seattle and Bellevue will be closed again this weekend). In the parking lot there’s a tent. Enter by the door under the tent and you can go straight up the stairs.

Anyone interested in glass is welcome to attend this free event but if you join the Guild you also get discounts on your silent auction bids and from some vendors and teachers.

Let’s make it a party: there will be lemonade and various finger food from Trader Joe’s for lunch. If you bring some finger food to share we’re sure to have enough.

• Vendors from as far away as Turner OR will be selling their products.

• We also have space for members who teach to put out class information.

The Silent Auction features at least 18 items including dichro from sponsor CBS and other glass, class discounts from sponsors Zetamari and Glass Expressions and from several members including David Smith at Blowing Sands, and even one of sponsor Gerald McBride‘s handmade wooden display stands for your glass creations.

*Payment for auction items will need to be made in cash or using your cell phone on-line to the Guild’s website store: we will not have a credit card reader and will not take checks.

Contact Stephanie Johnston, Sponsorship Team Lead to make a donation for the auction. If you have questions about the Vendor Fair you can call Karen Seymour at 206-525-1577. Since this is the first time the Guild has done this in the Seattle area we have no idea of how many folks to expect (emailing us if you plan to come will help us round up enough chairs).
Come and talk glass!
