Much better turn out for the fair!
The textile judging this year had a lot more excitement around it as the number of entries was way up. Thank you members for helping to keep the textiles a going interest in our County.
Be sure to stop by and see how you and others did, what types were a hit....
and to get inspired for next year.
Just had to get another shot of her "Hugs and Kisses". Was fun to get to see it close up and personal and hear the judge's comments.
Vevia got a first on her Manhattan Guild Challenge of last year - the 150 shades of purple with her Florida yellows.
Sara and Cindy got firsts as shown here.
Carol and Judy also went home with firsts.
Sara snuck in this beauty on us - sure hope it gets to Show 'n Tell this month so that we can get another look at it.
Sara also got a first on her fat quarter bag.
We had a new judge this year for the open class textiles: Jeanne, a FACS teacher with Blue Valley. She complimented Clay County's quilters on their points, bindings and corners. She had never seen so many good ones in one area. Yeah! Thank you mentors and demonstrators, every one.
Hayley got a Grand Champion on her quilt in the 4-H division. We will miss her as she goes off to college, praying that some how she manages to get in a little down time from her studies and keep up on her textile skills.
Congratulations also to Verna Lee's granddaughter Michaela - she received a Reserve Champion on her quilt.
Not bragging (much), guild grandchildren did very well all over the fair. Hayley is taking after her mother in the floral.....
Levi made us walk fast to the Floral Hall so he could show off his Grand.
Guild members kept popping up all over, here is Virginia's first and Carol's second in the Barn Quilts.
And Kelsey got a Reserve with her drawing.
Check out the guild members' photo's when you are down at the fair also, there are some great shots on display, including husbands that did not know they were going to be in the limelight.
There are many more entries than pictured here - so head down to the fair and take a look.
See you Monday at the guild meeting.
