Registration for the OK State Fair Creative Arts Competition has begun!
It’s free to register to submit your scarf to the competition. They display all the donated scarves together and then we pick them up after the fair. Everyone who enters receives a cool ribbon, and they even judge the scarves and award place ribbons to the ones they determine to be the top 10.
If you’d like to do this, but don’t want to have to drop your scarf off at the fairgrounds at the designated time, that’s no problem! You can bring it to our work day in July or make other arrangements to get it to Jessica by August 25th and she’ll drop it off for you you. You just need to register yourself, and get your scarf and copy of your registration receipt to us and we’ll handle the rest.
Free registration is online now through August 15th. You can submit up to 3 crocheted scarves and up to 3 knitted scarves. The details are all on the OK State Fair website.
You may have noticed that we take a break from meeting in July. This doesn’t mean that our work stops. In the past, at least 50 scarves have been needed this month to offer comfort to survivors! We hope you’re continuing to work on ones that we can package next month.
Also, our other July project is to start getting ready for the fair. It’s time to register for the Oklahoma State Fair Creative Arts Competition! Registration happens all online.
You can check out all the fair’s rules here. Please note that the deadline to register is August 15th at 5pm. Scarves must be dropped off at the fair on September 7th or 8th.
We can deliver your scarf to the fair for you! We’ll just need your scarf delivered to us by September 6th.
Whether you want to try a new pattern or one you’ve done many times, we hope you’ll take time to register and create a scarf for the fair. It’s so encouraging to see the display there amidst all the other needlework crafts.
Have you been thinking about entering a scarf in the Oklahoma State Fair, but just aren’t sure? I totally understand -before this option to enter a scarf as a donation to Threads of Compassion my last fair experience had been as a kiddo in 4-H.
I was surprised at how fun it was to see my item on display at the fair! So, whether you want to go see it on display or are just willing to donate, we hope you’ll join us this year.
This could be a great opportunity to try out a new pattern or do one that you’re really familiar with, all are welcome and appreciated.
There’s still time to register, and even more time to complete your scarf.
It was so neat to see all these scarves on display at the Oklahoma State Fair! We hope that each donor knows how much we appreciate their gift. We’ll be admiring them, photographing them, and packaging them at our next work day, Sunday 10/1. Join us if you can!
