The San Mateo county fair opens tomorrow. My CGOA chapter will have a table at the fair for 5 days where we will be demoing some different stitch patterns. We have a couple of take and make projects for people to do at the table. We will have a daily raffle for kits for patterns and yarn to crochet. We will be handing out info on our chapter, on CGOA, Project Linus, and Warm up America and the Oakland Fiber Festival. Should be a full and busy 5 days. I think I have everything together that we need to take. I sure hope so!
I spent 2 days this week setting up the displays for the knit and crochet entries. That is the first time I have ever done this kind of volunteer work. Very fun, but also very tiring! I pretty much had free reign in how to display the items. The folks in charge were very helpful in providing supplies I needed, dress forms, styrofoam heads, etc. I am very anxious to see what people think of the way the displays are done this year. I found out that they have not had a knitter or crocheter volunteer before to help. No wonder we find an afghan inside out or a hooded scarf upside down.
If you are in the Bay Area this next week, come by our booth on Sat, Sun, Tues, Sat or Sun, and say Hi.
