Who runs the Arkansas Fiber Fest? The Arkansas Fiber Fest is a non-profit organization and events are organized by a Board of Directors. What happens to any funds left over from the event? Any funds remaining after any Arkansas Fiber Fest event stays with the organization for the planning of future events. Do the Board members get paid? The Board of Directors are all volunteers and do not get compensated for their time.
How is the price of admission to the event decided? The Event Fee is determined by the cost of the event. The Event Fee covers a portion of the cost of renting the facility and the keynote speaker. In addition, the fee covers the cost of the registrants' souvenir tote bag, name tag, and added value items. How is the Class fee determined for each class? Each teacher provides Arkansas Fiber Fest with a cost per student as part of the class proposal. The Board takes that amount and adds a nominal fee to cover rental of classroom space and that is the price that the student pays to take the class. How is the Vendor Booth Rental fee determined? The Vendor Booth Rental fee is determined by the number of booths available for rental divided by the total amount to rent the facility. Can I bring my livestock to the event? The Arkansas Fiber Fest does not permit livestock at any event at this time.
Why don't you allow refunds on Registration and/or class fees? At this time, we do not have the capability to issue refunds because we budget the event based on the income generated the previous year, as well as the income generated during the registration period.
