Unfortunately, SAFF has received notification from the WNC Agricultural Center yesterday, October 18th that we will not be allowed to use the Davis Arena for our event next week. This is all in part to the Legionnaire’s report from the WNC Mountain State Fair that I’m sure all of you have been following on national news, local news, Facebook and our website. An emergency SAFF Board meeting was called last night to discuss our options. Since SAFF is renting all of the buildings in the WNC Agricultural Center for the SAFF event we have the option of making some building changes. Updated maps will be available on the SAFF website, SAFF App and additional program inserts will be provided at the event.
Here is a list of the building changes:
Davis Arena Vendors and Barn F Vendors will now be located in the McGough Arena and the adjoining Covered Arena.
All Fiber Animals will be in the Sales Arena, Barn D & Barn C.
Davis Arena Lobby demos will now be located in the McGough Arena.
Fiber Arts Competition will now be located in the McGough Arena Conference Room.
Workshop locations will not be affected by these changes with the exception to Davis 1 & 2 classrooms which will now be located in the Expo Building.
Fleece Show & Sale, no changes, Boone Building.
We really appreciate all the love and support that we have been receiving from our fiber friends during this rather difficult challenge and most of all we appreciate your patience and understanding. Your safety and wellbeing at SAFF are our #1 priority. We can do this!!
See you soon,
