Creative Arts - Big E Countdown!

August 29, 2013 3:14 PM | Patty Foley
 I'm just back from the Fair ground where I picked up this year's tickets for the Volunteers and got to see our NEW showcase!  By the way - there are 18 exhibitors and 37 entries!  Thank you Everyone!

Big Thanks to Jane Chapman at Creative Arts for snagging a new display case.  We have been using these two cases.  That's Jane 
doing the modeling.  While great cases to display our lace,  both  are a
 bit small for number of pieces of lace submitted.  Then neither are at eye level.  
Never fear - with some discussion back in January she mentioned that she had another case in mind.  It was from the Storrow Town Village's basement.  Guess there are treasurers down there.  The Girl Scouts used it last year.  She said it was bigger, had glass shelves and it was more at eye level.   Unseen, I said that would be great.  Great doesn't do it justice.

This will be our new home for our lace entries at Creative Arts - Big E for 2013!

 Yeah!  Okay we will need to spruce it up a bit - that's no problem.

Big thanks to Jane!  We really appreciate the effort to find a new cabinet to display our lace.

BIG E OPENING DAY ---- Friday, Sept 13th
Entries due at the Fair grounds on Friday Sept 6th and/or Sept 7th.

CHECK the website before opening day to see pictures of the entries before the public! 

Good Luck everyone,

    Fantastic news that we had so many entries this year! Well done everyone. I can't wait to see photos of the lace and the list of prize winners.

    The new display case is AWESOME!!! It will be absolutely fantastic to display the lace, and I look forward to seeing how beautiful everything looks.

    Thanks Patty, and everyone else who is helping to get things ready for opening day.


    PS: Perhaps I'll think about putting in an entry next year. It's been quite a while since we've had an international entry! If I recall, the last one was a bookmark that was entered by my mother, many years ago.
