County Fair 2014

This morning we set up our display at the county fair. We all sit in a big circle in front of it while demo'ing spinning but occasionally carding, felting, knitting, whatever. We used to get so many fleeces turned in for judging that we filled the table and two tiers in front of it.  No fleeces entered for judging by the time we left, friends Margie & Karen brought these just for show from their stashes.  I think a major problem is that last year they started charging a fee just to enter a fleece for judging. The display is getting a little worn looking with nothing much new other than Virginia's new hooked rug in the center.  So.....I have an idea for a theme for next year that our spinning group can work on during the winter - maybe we can get everyone to contribute something to show other than Linda, Virginia and me. More on that in a few months when I pull it all together. The fair runs Wednesday-Saturday - should be a fun time.


  1. I love all the items you have displayed. I especially love the felted wall hanging with the orange flowers. Beautiful! Have a wonderful time at the fair. :)

    1. Actually it's not felted - it's a hooked rug that Virginia spun all the yarn for - she's doing some beautiful hooking these days, always a new one to show at the fair.


I love your comments - thank you!
