I know you’ll agree with me that when one visits a country (or city) show, a long look at the handicrafts section is always important. Preferably an unhurried look with a friend who sews.
Our country show is a one-day event, which we went to yesterday. I had vowed to enter an exhibit this year but got too busy with The Dressmaker’s Companion and the closing date snuck up on me (my children entered things but not sewing). Wish I had entered now; I counted only twelve dressmaking exhibits. We have to support these events!
The entry fee is small (50c) and so is the prize money, but the fun and kudos are BIG.
There were a couple of stand-out exhibits:
I must enter next year!
