WHO SHOULD APPLY TO VEND AT HOUSTON FIBER FEST

  • Houston Fiber Fest ONLY accepts vendors who primarily sell yarn, fiber, and other items directly related to fiber arts. No exceptions.
  • This is a juried event. Our team hand picks a selection of vendors with a focus on those local to Texas and the surrounding area. Houston Fiber Fest aims to be a destination for buyers to find unique, high quality products and premium specialty items.
  • Sales and show specials are allowed, but we strongly discourage deep discounting. Our show is not an appropriate place to liquidate your clearance bin. If any vendor ignores this suggestion, it may affect whether that vendor is invited to return the following year.
  • We do not accept vendor applications from the following:
    • No direct sales or multi level marketing reps (LuLaRoe, Jamberry, Scentsy, etc.)
    • No sellers with a majority of products outside the fiberarts community (jewelry, general crafts, etc.)
    • No sellers with primarily finished objects such as knitted, crocheted, or woven items 

 CANCELLATION/REFUND POLICY

  • Cancellation notifications must be sent via email to vendors@houstonfiberfest.com
  • Vendors who cancel by April 1, 2018 will be refunded all fees less an administrative fee of $50 for a single space or $100 for a double space.
  • There will be no refunds for any cancellations after April 1, 2018.
  • In the event of cancellation, Houston Fiber Fest reserves the right to use the canceled booth space for its own convenience, including selling the space to another vendor on the waiting list, without any rebate or allowance to the canceling vendor. The canceling vendor may not give their booth space to someone else.

 DOOR PRIZES

  • Each vendor will be required to donate a $25 gift certificate to be used as a door prize.
  • Vendors wishing to donate additional items to be used as raffle prizes may contact us later in the year for information about sponsorship.

 DEMONSTRATIONS

  • Vendors may demonstrate products they have for sale in their booth. Such demonstrations must remain within the vendor’s allotted booth space.
  • Vendors wishing to demonstrate a product or technique for the public in the atrium may contact us later in the year for information about our demo area.
  • Classes are not allowed in the vendor area at any time.
