The Humboldt County Fair

Day 8 of the Humboldt County Fair. I've been coming to the Humboldt County Fair in Ferndale, CA for about 39 years. I remember the first year Mr. Scottie Dog and I attended as newlyweds...actually it was the first county fair I'd ever gone to. Then over the years we brought the girls. Loved to look at all the animals, the flowers, the quilts, the attractions and of course eat a bit of "fair food." Most years when the girls were young we'd bring a picnic lunch or dinner and just buy a treat. Then there were the years I judged the quilts at the fair....and the past few years we've been vending at the Crescent City Quilt Show and missed the fair entirely.
Well this year we are vendors in the commercial building here at the fair. Here are a couple of shots of our booth. We were quite pleased with our location.

Pfaff gave us great pricing for all our machines and we've sent many happy sewers home with new machines. We are also selling quilt kits and a few other things. Business is booming at the Fair!

One of the truisms is that you will eventually see everyone at the fair! I saw Ferndale native, Guy Fieri with his family.

Finally back to blogging. I'll post some vacation pics tomorrow. Hope your summer has been as fun-filled as mine!

I bet your county fair is pleasant to attend because the weather up there is a bit cooler than in the valley.
Your booth looks good.
I've missed your regular(ish) blog postings.

What a great booth at the fair ... I hope you're doing a smashing business. I love that giant pinwheel quilt hanging on the left in the photo.

I know I'm way out of the loop -- who is Guy Fieri?
