Ventura County Fair Volunteers Needed! 


We are so excited to finally have the Ventura County Fair back this year! We haven't been able to go the last 2 years, but the Fair is back and we will be hosting a table in the Home Arts building at the Fair, where we will share a little of what we do here at Strings & Things Studio.

We will be there on Saturday, August 6th and Sunday, August 14th from 12-5pm.  We're looking for volunteers from our wonderful customers to help out at our table each day.  You can sign up for the first shift; 12-2:30pm, or the second shift; 2:30pm-5pm.  There is room for three volunteers each shift and spots are filling up.

What does a volunteer do? Well, bring along a project to work on, take a seat with us, and hang out while we answer questions about knitting, crocheting, and about the Studio in general! Think of it as sort of a Group Drop-In session, but in public!

Each volunteer will get a ticket for admission to the Fair, so you can walk around and see the exhibits when you are done helping us tell visitors about what the studio is about. You can sign up at the studio during a drop-in session, or during a class this next week, or you can email us at and let us know what day/time you'd like to sign-up for. Volunteers can pick up their tickets* at the studio when we have them available.

*admission tickets do NOT include parking.
