As I mentioned in the previous post, this weekend I am working at our local fair in the needlework section. The work prior to the fair, taking in the entries, and putting together the final display is the hardest night, which happened on Thursday night. This year we were able to leave by 10:30 p.m., which was our earliest night ever. We have learned to cut the time down by waiting until Friday afternoon, prior to the gates opening, to set up the display on the table portions.
We had great help this year with taking in the entries, tagging, and judging, and hanging the quilts on the wall. The building that we display in is great! It has a high ceiling, with skylights and good lighting so for a country fair is really amazing. We have the quilts that are displayed on the wall on a pulley system that my husband set up when the building was new, 7-10 years ago. Anyway for today, I will share the before and after shots for the needlework display.
This is the before photo of our area.
This is a picture of one of my Quilt Guild friends helping, Cathy Mitchell.
This is the after photo.
Just a reminder, these are quilts entered by many people from local towns as well as myself.
Also, I have to share a photo of my favorite fair food that I must have one time during the weekend, which is……….. warm apple crisp with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. YUMMMMM!
