Part of the vendor artist experience includes working a minimum of 8 hours.  But, please consider becoming an SCAA volunteer beforehand and become part of the Christmas House Arts and Crafts Committee as it fine tunes its planning for workshops and other activities to make the event as festive and fun as ever.
