There's going to be a lot of alpaca farms represented there. Alpaca and llama are lovely to spin, if you haven't tried them yet. Rachael Herron is going to be signing her novel How to Knit a Love Song. Felt the Sun will have some great hand felted garments and accessories, and there will be a few local guilds there.
