Registration Information

Online registration for Fiber Arts Workshops will open on Sunday, February 11 at 2:00 pm EST. This year we are offering online registration ONLY. Refer to online registration instructions for more information about registering online.

Online Registration
We are again using Eventbrite as the online registration mechanism for Fiber Arts Workshops. You can access our Eventbrite online registration page at https://mswf2018.eventbrite.com
Confirmation
You will receive a confirmation message directly from Eventbrite. This will be the only confirmation message you receive. You will no longer receive a second confirmation message from the Festival.
Double Booking
Eventbrite allows you to register for more than one class at a time. It does not, however, prevent you from registering for multiple classes that occur at the same time. Please pay careful attention to the dates and times of the classes you select in order to avoid “double booking” yourself. We will not be held responsible for your selection of classes and any conflicts that occur.
NEW! No Buying of Seats for Others
New this year – In the interest of allowing as many people as possible access to classes, buying seats for other people is no longer allowed. You will be limited to one ticket per workshop.
Notifications

  • If there’s a class cancellation, or any other need to contact attendees at the last minute, we may only have your email address for communication!
  • If your email address changes, you are responsible for notifying the Festival of that change. The Festival WILL NOT be held responsible for incorrect email addresses.
  • Registrants are responsible for periodically checking the Festival website for updates.

Cancellation of Classes
On rare occasion it may be necessary to cancel a class or several classes due to instructor illness or travel delays. Should this occur, the Festival will make notification as soon as possible by the following methods: email, cellular telephone number, or home telephone number, if provided. The student will have the option of participating in another scheduled class, providing there is a place available in that class OR a refund for the class will be given. The Festival WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE for travel or hotel fees incurred by the student or any other fee related to the cancellation. If the student opts for a replacement class, NO REFUND WILL BE GIVEN.
Waiting List
