I don’t know about other parts of our country, but here in upstate New York summer means county fairs.  Each week there is a new and exciting Fair.  The closest one to me is 10 minutes away.  It is the Washington County Fair.

People flock to it for amusement rides, competitions, and food. There are demolition derbys, musical shows, and tractor pulls.  Families spend time together.  They show their creative skills and their livestock.

Why do I write about this?  I think it is important for children and adults to share things they create.  Sewing, knitting, weaving, spinning, rug hooking shouldn’t be lost arts.   Put something that you have created in your local fair.  Whether you win a blue ribbon or not you are a winner.  You just may be the one who inspires another.

2015 Washington County Fair is August 24-30.

Entries must by done by July 24
