We're doing the Fair!

Our first 3 days at the fair have been a barrel of fun. We have met some great people, shared our love of crochet with quite a few folks and even had time to check out some the things around us at the fair.

Saturday was a little hectic when we first arrived because we had 2 tables and had to set them up the way we wanted them. Anita was on hand to help with the set up and the booth for Saturday. Kris arrived later in the afternoon to relieve Anita. But she attended the pig races before she came to the booth. The heat index was the hottest day so far this year, but everyone' s spirits were up.  Opening day is always a little crazy.

The winner of our Saturday drawing for the Cluster Hooded Scarf kit is Jennifer.

On Sunday, Penny and her sister, Kitty helped Cay and Peter man the booth. We had more interested folks stop by and work on make 'n take. We gave away brochures on our chapter, Project Linus, and Warm Up America.
Brad who knows Peter from Ravelry stopped by to say Hi and sat down and crocheted a coaster from our make 'n take table. He caught that Cay had not done the final round on the sample coaster. Shame on Cay!   We are hoping that he will cross the water and come to one of our meetings.

Sunday, Yvette won the kit for the Autumn Breeze Pidge.

Tuesday was Seniors Day at the fair, and fortunately the heat level dropped to reasonable.  Andy, Penny and Miss Mattie helped Cay talk to the folks who stopped by our booth. .Later in the day, Tom arrived to assist. We had quite a lot of interest in what we were doing. So many people told us they did crochet, or used to crochet. One lady told us that she has been crocheting for over 70 years! Since most were older, they were hesitant to come across the bay for our meetings, so we directed them to the CGOA chapter that meets in Redwood City. Hopefully, some of them will choose to participate there.
Tuesday's winner was Brenda and she received the Ridge Runner Fingerless Gloves kit.
We have 2 more drawings for kits on Saturday and Sunday.  All you have to do is sign up for our blog.  Please come by and say Hey. Enjoy the photos we've taken and stop again for updates on the fair and new photos.
