What if I have to cancel?

Tickets to the Modern Stitching Affair are non-refundable. However, if you purchased a ticket and cannot attend for any reason, your ticket may be transferred to someone else. If the event is sold out, we will keep a waiting list. Let us know you can’t make it, and we will contact people on the waiting list to try to sell your ticket for you. If no one on the waiting list is able to purchase your ticket, then you are free to sell your ticket to anyone you please. You just have to let us know who will be coming in your place.

This event sounds great! How can I be a sponsor or demonstrator?
