State Fair Contests – What is the Competition?

Last August, I covered the ASG members’ winning entries at the State Fair. This month, I thought that you might like to see other entries that won ribbons in the same categories, as well as some entries in other sewing-related contests.

Marie Barrese and I made a trip to the Fair to take pictures of items in the cases at the Creative Arts building. There were too many photos to include in this post, but I think you will get an idea of the level of competition for each classification. If you wonder why some entries won a higher ribbon than another entry, consider the following:

  • The judges got a much better look at the item. They were able to handle it and look inside at the construction techniques.
  • They are limited on display space so not everything will be shown to its best advantage.
  • Getting detailed photos of each item was a challenge due to the reflections on the glass and low lighting.

I’ve attached a pdf document with everything I was able to match to a classification. For each class I’ve noted how many ribbons were awarded. If there were only 2 ribbons, they probably only received 2 entries. If there were 8 ribbons awarded there were probably more than 8 entries. I’ve also noted names just for ASG members.
