2014 California State Fair

The 2014 California State Fair is in full swing. If you haven't had a chance to attend yet, you still have about a week left. Right now the temperature here in Sacramento is in the 80's which is the perfect fair weather compared to temperatures in the 100's plus in past years.

My two beautiful dolls Michael and Verlene are

"stylin'" in building 8, the Quilts and Textiles Exhibits along with some amazing quilts, wearable art
and other fiber and textile arts.

Sleepy eyed Michael won a third place ribbon and sassy Verlene won honorable mention. This was my first time ever entering the fair and I can't wait to try again next year.

My good buddy Jan Hollins was also a first time entrant and she won a third place ribbon for her quilt "Days Gone By". If you attended the 2014 Sisters Quilting Collective exhibit at the Brickhouse Gallery you got to see 'Miss Ida's' debut.

Alice Calhoun's wonderful quilt was also beautifully displayed. 


This is Connie Horn's wearable art entry. Connie won the Meissner Sewing & Learning Center Award.

I feel very honored to be among these amazing fiber artists. If you have a chance to get to the fair please take a few minutes to visit building 8.
