Excellent array of vendors. About the same number as last year.
It's always fun to see Karen of Seven Sisters Arts and her gorgeous yarn!

Old favorites such as Seven Sisters Arts, Leading Men Fiber Arts, Kitchen Counter Crafter, Sun Valley Fibers and new ones too.  Not buying much yarn because I love what I have and need to knit some of it.
