Last year a few of us entered quilts at the fair. While none of us won any big prizes, we did make our mark on the more traditional atmosphere of the fair. So much so, that this year there is a special prize specifically for a quilt in a "modern style" This prize is sponsored by Rosebud's Cottage in White Bear Lake. We would like to encourage all of our members to enter at least one quilt in the fair. The process is easy and the feedback from the judges can be very helpful. There are many categories to choose from. If you have a quilt that you want to enter, you can easily find a category that it fits into in the Rules & Premiums guide.
Online registration has already begun and will continue until August 6. After registering your entries online they can be dropped off at the creative activities building beginning Aug. 11 until Aug.14. Be sure to mention in your registration that you would like to be considered for SP237 (modern style) in addition to the regular category that it falls in.
We also thought it would be fun to challenge all of our members to enter a quilt-on-a-stick. This is a fun mini-quilt category with a different theme every year. This year's theme is Tattoo and Body Adornment at the Fair. The quilt must be a rectangle that is 8" wide and 9" high with a centered vertical sleeve on the back in which a paint stick can be inserted.
You can find much more detailed information on the Creative Activites Page.
