For the first time EVER, we are offering the opportunity to purchase admission tickets and raffle tickets in advance! Here’s what you need to know.
One Ticket Per Submission
You can only purchase one ticket per submission of the form. If you want multiple admission tickets, you need to do multiple transactions.
We will only sell 80 admission tickets online. All others must purchase tickets at the door.
For those who preregister, we will open a registration desk in the lobby outside the Clarion’s ballroom at 9:15 am. You will be able to enter the event starting at 9:30 am. Anyone buying tickets at the door can not enter until 10:00 am.
Only Available with Admission
You may only purchase raffle tickets in advance if you are also purchasing an admission ticket.
Raffle Tickets Available Onsite
Raffle tickets will be sold throughout the event as the drawing is not held until 4:30 pm.
Three Baskets Available
This year we have three raffle baskets. See below for more details.
This year, we have three raffle baskets — one knitting / crochet and two spinning. Each basket has an estimated retail value in excess of $200.
Raffle tickets are $1 each or a pack of six for $5.
Please note that the contents of this year’s spinning baskets came from the estate of a local fiber artist who passed away a couple years ago. She kept open boxes of moth balls in her fiber room and closets, so the fiber does retain some of that odor.
None of the yarn in the knitting / crochet basket came from the estate and none of the yarn smells of mothballs.

Preregistration ends on January 2, 2020 at 9:00 am or when we’ve sold out of the 80 admissions, whichever comes first.
The Warmies Project will be joining us for the seventh year! The Warmies Project is organized by BE Orlando. They collect handmade items to distribute when it gets cold. BE Orlando distributes the handmade items to homeless shelters, hospices, hospitals, domestic violence shelters and more.
In addition to the handmade items, BE Orlando is also happy to accept any donations of non-perishable foods, which will go to the Coalition for the Homeless. Any leftovers from the Orlando Distaff Day Potluck will also go directly to the Coalition, so if you “happen” to make twice as many cookies as we need for the event, they will still find a great home!
In 2019, Orlando Distaff Day attendees donated 247 handmade items (almost double the number of items donated in 2018) and more than 50 items of donated food. Perhaps we can beat that total in 2020!
Craft up something from the heart to share with those less fortunate. Bring some non-perishable food. Visit The Warmies Project website for pictures of all the items donated by Orlando Distaff Day attendees over the last four years!
