The end of the fair for another year....


More quilts from the fair.







The one on the left was started in one of my classes.  The one on the right was made by a lady who was in my computer classes.









This one was made in another teacher's class at our sewing machine store.  One of her red fabrics ran into the white even with a color catcher.  I gave her some Orvus Soap to wash it with and the color came out.

There are lots of categories for knitting too.  Here is a little clothesline with some of the hats.  You can see the back wall with cross stich pictures up high, quilts and afghans below them and tables below them with lots of items.

I'm only showing a small portion of all of the knitted items.
Here are a few more of the beautiful cakes.  That is the end of the fair pictures.  I finished sewing the Bento Box quilt top but haven't gotten a good picture yet, maybe tomorrow.

Isn't it great to see that your students have learned from you and also finished the quilt!! How wonderful! Love the cakes, they look almost too good to eat.

Thank you for the trip to the Fair. I truly enjoyed seeing all the eye candy and I didn't gain any weight eating all that delicious fair food! ;)

Makes me wish we had a fall fair like that!! What a wonderful array of creativity!
Love that red and white quilt with the stitcheries.

I use the color catchers, and I found that it takes more than one to really capture the colors that run. Plus , I just don't use them once , some colors continue to run through numerous washings. Orvus is a wonderful soap to use for keeping the colors bright and clean looking.

I will have to remember that Orvus trick. I would just be sick to put that much work into a quilt and then have something like that happen. I soak my floss in vinegar water before I use it in projects that are going to be washed.

How fun to see finished projects from your students. And the cakes, wow!

An amazing array of talent in your part of the country. But then you are the inspiration for a lot of it too, being the teacher. Those teachings ripple through the community, you know, and help lots of others. Good job, Wanda! And thanks for rippling a bit of it on to us, too. Terri

Hi Wanda,
The textiles are great, but those cakes -- Wow! Someone spent a lot of time and tears over those beauties (one wonders how many of their roses were in the "good" vs. "reject" pile, as they had to be perfect for the fair.) And the fondant artist; the garden cake appears to have little clay sculptures. Way beyond my skill set.

What a stunning collection of artist's creations. It must have been fun to explore the different displays- 1400 is such a large number of pieces.
It is interesting to see which things attract one when it comes to creating- I love most forms of needlework but am not really interested in doing them. I like quilting the best- and only by machine.
Thanks for the grand tour...
Regards,
Anna
