And of course, Needlepoint entries are must-look pieces.
The Counted Thread Embroidery category is one of my favorite.
I so enjoyed looking at these handmade purses, as part of Sewing Category. They're way better up close and personal. And there were purses i n the Crochet and Knitting Catogories as well, unfortunately, I didn't able to take pics of them. That's something I have to remind myself on friday.
I had so much fun on my "Finishing Techniques for Stitchery" class. I met wonderful stitchers,!Some of the students are not stitchers but were brave enough to enroll in the class. There were a set of friends (quilters) and sisters (one of which is into crochet). Thank you so much for enrolling in the class ladies. I hope you had fun too, and will manage to use what you learned when you get home. I can't wait to see your completed pieces so please don't forget to send me a photo or 2.
DH ate more than I did... of course, as he had a lot of time to kill while I was in the class. I had "pork chop on a stick" and a big cup of iced tea for lunch... my favorite at the Fair. After eating, I managed to take a glimpse of my 2 jewelry entries at the Creative Arts & Crafts Division. My piece for the "Needle Constructed Jewelry" won 3rd place, while for the "Stringing Technique" won 4th place. I was extremely happy with the result coz I know how talented the jewelry designers in Des Moines are. I was just expecting my pieces to be displayed (not rejected), yet they'll go home with a ribbon. I'll just share the photos next time as the pieces were all displayed under a glass... inside the cabinets.
