Oh how intriguing. That's the day I get back in town! I'll have to stop by.

Just to clarify, The Workshop is on 6th street. The Church of Craft only meets there on the 2nd Sunday of the month. Otherwise they are two completely different entities (though we love each other very much!) The Workshop doesn't really specialize in needle arts so you probably won't find any yarn there. However, there is a nice assortment of hand knits for sale there.

Uh I'd do it if there was no live band...

But seriously, there is a lot more to consider:

How much you charge depends on a lot of factors. Are you  providing tables? What is your marketing strategy. Would I as a vendor have to do a lot on my own to publicize the event? When is it and what else is going on at the time? Who gets into the show? Is it selective or first come first serve?

If you're charging the public to get in, how much is that going to limit who attends? Paying for an event that only has 15 tables? Is having live music going to be a distraction from buying (hint, it usually is)? Where is it going to be located? Is anyone really going to come out and shop at 11pm? Most crafting people have day jobs. What day of the week is it?

Those would be my first concerns just off the top of my head based on what you've got here.

It would be interesting to see how this turns out. I wouldn't do it, however, because I like to have more control over what the fibers do throughout the felting process. Besides, felting is *supposed* to be messy.  Perhaps covering the whole thing very tightly  with pantyhose (a la Beth Beede) would be a better option than the muslin.

Somewhere I read that brown paper bags help repel moths and pest that may want to come hang out in your wool.

What's the pay like?

Depends on what you're after but check out the thrift stores on So. Lamar -Goodwill and a Salvation Army and then there seems to be several clusters of them at almost every major intersection along Stassney.
