We appreciate each and every one of you who used our Registration Form to volunteer for a shift or two during the event!
If you have not heard from Cris about your assignment, we’ve heard that some of them have been eaten by Spam Gremlins!
Please send me an email at info@dfwfiberfest.org and I’ll make sure we get your assignment to you!
