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.
