Default Its almost Fair time!!!

It is almost time for our County and Four States Fair. I have been so busy with other things like gardening and canning that I haven't got a thing ready to enter in the fair this year. I've got to get busy!! Are any of you ready for the fair in your area? I am always anxious to see what everyone else is making. How many of you enjoy this time of year as much as I do?

We had a fair near by us in NJ (we live in PA), but we didn't go because I was too busy quilting! LOL. I'm brandy new at this quilting thing but I am really enjoying the results so far. We'll see after I'm don't with my present project....and I sure do love this time of year. Happy quilting! Have you been quilting a long time?

I've been quilting about 8 years. My specialty is hand quilting. But, I am working hard at becoming prolific at machine quilting. Just got a longarm last year. Still learning on that thing.

Our fair is next month, looking forward to going. I have never entered anything, maybe someday.

I always try to enter a few things in our fair but I missed it this year. I am already putting aside things for next year and will be there to pick up my forms early. Fairs are struggling in some areas and if we don't participate, we have no one to blame but ourselves if sewing events disappear in the fairs.

I'm entering 2 queen size appliqued quilts in our fair in about 3 weeks. And then again in a juried show in October (I think). Yes, I love this time of the year!

I love this time of year coming up! I have not been brave enough to enter anything in the fair yet. Maybe next year.

This will be the first year I am NOT entering a quilt in the fair in about 5 years. We are leaving on vacation the day before you drop them off and wont be back until the day after pick up! I don't really have any thing ready anyway.
