Fall Fair Sewing

Every year the local Millarville-Priddis Fair is a fun event. This year I helped 13-year-old N make a skirt and an 11-year-old friend make a tote-bag.  They both won prizes in their category and age-groups, along with gift certificates to Fabricland.  It was wonderful to see their satisfaction in their projects.
    I also received awards for J's pink dress and hat and a women's knit dress.   The child's dress surprised me because competition is usually pretty stiff in that category.  But entries were down this year.  So...because some of you didn't enter -- I took home a prize.  Thank you very much.  But for next year, if you're a sewist living around Calgary or near  Millarville-Priddis, this is a fun event.
       A second edition of J's hat is going in the Purses for Africa sale in October in Calgary.
