The 149th Saanich Fair

Our local agricultural fall fair is 149 years old! The first fair was held the same year as Canadian Confederation, 1867.

I was asked to help with the judging for the Quilting section again this year.  Here are a few pictures of some of the winning entries.

It was wonderful to see all the quilting talent in our area. I encourage all the quilters on Vancouver Island to enter next year's Saanich Fair - it will be the 150th year (the same as Canada). What a great way to celebrate our country's birthday!  See you there.
