I love IA State Fair, though I know others who doesn't attend such event due to crowd and extreme weather - either too hot or rainy. I've been teaching 3D hand-finishing (re: embroidery) at the Fabrics and Threads Department in the last 2 years and I always have a blast. This year, my class was at the first day of the Fair (venue is at the right side of the first photo). Below are all entries from Fabrics and Threads - all forms of embroideries, quilts, crochet, knitting, tatting, sewing, etc. I didn't took as much photos this year as I used my camcorder instead so I can make a video for MIL.
