2017 Vendors

Arts & Crafts
I go to different fabric stores to get unique fabric prints. I use them to make wrap dresses.
Each of them is one-size-fits most type of dresses but, I have three different lengths, short, medium,
I mark each of them with chalk lines, cut each of them with scissors, and sew them with the sewing
machine. Each of them is handmade by me.
These dresses are so amazing since they can be worn multiple ways. The fabric I choose are very
comfortable for summer time. The dresses are loose fit so people feel very relaxed. They are not a
bother while being worn. The colors are so unique, that’s what all the women want to be. I use the
sewing machine and scissors, tape measure, chalk to make them.
I attached some photos while I am sewing the fabric to make the dress and some photos of how I tie
different styles of how to wear the dress.
I would like to have these amazing handmade dresses in your event.

National Remember Our Troops Campaign
Hello my name is Lisa Sietsma. I'm the Northeastern Regional Manager for NROTC, The National Remember Our Troops Campaign. We are a 501(c)(3) military and veterans charity. We are best known for our "Thank You For Your Service" postcards that we send to our troops overseas.
We do this by setting up postcard signing donation tables at events like yours. Passers-by write their personal notes of support and encouragement on these postcards that go a long way to improve the morale of our troops. Donations at our table help in part to support NROTC’s Veterans Emergency Aid & Assistance Program to help veterans and their families who have fallen on hard times. I am interested in having one of our volunteers setting up a table/booth at your event this coming Chester County Balloon Festival on June 23 to 25 I am wondering... Do you waive table or booth fees for nonprofit organizations from time to time? We are very small and we cannot afford paying for the fees at this time. We don't require any electric. We would be willing to give you a tax deductible receipt for the amount of our table/booth/space.
I look forward to hear from you soon.
