Terms & Conditions

Liability

Washington State Fair, Washington State University, the show management, nor any member of the above named will be responsible for any guaranteed number of participants, nor for any injury, loss or damage that may occur to the vendor or the vendor’s employees or property from any cause whatsoever. The vendor, upon registering online, expressly releases the aforementioned from any and all claims for such loss, damage or injury. The vendor floor will be locked during the time that booths are not being shown and all reasonable precautions will be taken for security. The online registration for a vendor booth at the 2021 Sewing & Stitchery Expo will become an agreement between the registering vendor and Washington State University Professional Education. Vendors are liable for any damage caused to building floors, walls, or columns, or to standard booth equipment, or other vendors’ property.

In the event of postponement or cancellation for any cause beyond its control, Washington State University will not be financially obligated or otherwise committed beyond the reimbursement of the booth rental fee paid on a pro-rated basis.

Taxes

Washington state law provides that every person who shall engage in any business for which a tax is imposed under the Revenue Act shall obtain a Certification of Registration from the Department of Revenue. A Temporary Certificate of Registration may be issued to any person who operates a business of temporary nature. These certificates are issued without charge and are valid for the duration of the special event in which you are participating.
