Definitely always ask, Shirley, Jane and priscilla. Every one of us was once where you are - wondering what language people are speaking. And if you ever get the chance to go - oh don't pass it up. The fesitval is the biggest on the east coast and lots of KR forumites attend. They picnic at the front gate, just to the left a little of the entrance. Several are vendors at the fair. It's a fantastic spring fling. But either bring only cash or bring two suitcases to pack home all your haul.
And if you do go, stop by Spirt Trail Fiberworks Booth in the Main building - where I will be a booth babe.
I hate that all the good stuff is so far away from me. But then again, it's better for my wallet. It sounds like so much fun. I hope you all have a wonderful time and tell us all about it when you get home.
