I spent a day working as a show steward setting up all the handcrafts. There were lots of crochet, knitting and sewing entries as well as quilts, toys, and hand made cards.
Make sure there are no loose threads on any sewing,
If you are crocheting an edge on something make sure all your corners are the same,
Make sure you stick to any size limits specified,
And the more work involved the more points you get.
I am not sure that I would be in with any sort of a chance based on what I saw. I am only a novice sewer and have only just learnt to crochet, so if I start now I might be ready for next years show.
|A very cute entry in the "made from recycled materials"|
I love the colour of this bantam she was very cute with very fluffy feet.
Second for both my Bread and Butter Pickles and Cherry Chutney, third for my Eggs, sadly I missed out on placing with my other entries but there was a lot of competition and that is not really why I entered. It is all about getting into the spirit of the event and having a go. Every year I enter a few more things and I am already thinking about next year.
