Fiber Market
The fiber market at GMNAF will feature a collection of vendors whose booths will bring you everything from raw fiber, beads, yarn from small yarn shops and independent dyers, stitch markers, needles and notions and everything you’ll need to continue or to learn a new craft. 

Classrooms will be located in close proximity to the market space, just in case you need to grab something for a class.
