It is no one's fault that there was less badge art last year, several badge makers applied for Artists Alley 2010. Many wanted 2 tables and space was very limited, others also applied for badge art as one of their products but might not have sold it. Several artists were also contacted from the waitlist when space opened and were unable to attend, these things happen. Changes have been made for applying in Artists Alley this year, providing the chance to bring in a couple more badge artists since larger spaces are done differently, the problem had already been noted and steps taken to fix it. Thanks.
