Fair Information

Have you been thinking about joining us at the Oklahoma State Fair but just aren’t sure yet? We thought a bit of info may be helpful as you’re deciding…

  1. Registration has begun! It’s free and available online until 5pm on August 15th.
  2. Items need to be dropped off at the fair Saturday September 9th or Sunday the 10th from 9am-4pm. (so you still have over 2 months to make your scarf!)
  3. If you’d like us to drop off your scarves, we’ll be glad to take them for you! Just be sure to register on time and print out your registration receipt, we’ll need that when we drop it off.
  4. Since your scarves will be donated to us you don’t need to pick it back up, but you can pick up your ribbon Monday 9/25 from 2-7 pm or Tuesday 9/26 from 10am-2pm. If you’d like us to pick up your ribbon, we can do that, just be sure to get your receipt to us before pick up time.

Let’s Go to the Fair Again!

Last year went so well that we’re excited to be included again this year in the Oklahoma State Fair’s creative arts competition!

You get to enter the fair and make a donation to Threads of Compassion OKC at the same time! There are even ribbons for the top 10 in each category.

There’s no cost to you to enter, and we’ll even deliver the scarf for you if you’d like.

The registration is all online this year. It’s quick and easy to do. The division for Threads of Compassion is 3578.

Sharing softness at a hard time

We are so excited to be partnering with LuLa Roe Kari Littlejohn this month! In honor of sexual assault awareness month, this business is working to provide leggings to victims of sexual assault.

The way it works is that you can purchase a pair of leggings and then donate a pair as well. There’s a $10 discount on the 2nd pair that will be donated, so for $40 you can have a cool, comfy pair for you and provide one to be donated!

If you haven’t tried LuLa Roe leggings before, you may be surprised by how soft and comfy they are. I’ve heard so many people say “they’re like butter”. They really are the softest, most comfy item in my wardrobe.

The donated pairs will be delivered to the YWCA in order to be distributed by their staff. A selection of both sizes of leggings will be delivered in order to try to serve as many as possible.

You can shop online for your leggings, or you can contact Kari to make arrangements to shop in person in Edmond. If you don’t live close by, no problem, you can select your leggings online and take advantage of discounted shipping for this project.
