 Maker’s Fair 2017 discussion- Talked about having 2 booths next year, 20’x10’. This would be $130.00 which includes a temporary business license with 10% going to the Guild. Also discussed adding a Guild sales booth 10’x10’ for $65.00. Open to more discussion and ideas.
 State Fair- We are not planning to participate next year, at this point but will make a decision after we find out what is planned for next year.
