Republic's fair was cancelled last summer because of the forest fires so WSQ awarded two ribbons to quilters this year.

More information about entering your quilts in this year's fair will be posted on this site.
WSQ has been awarding the fair ribbons since 2003. We first started our awards in 2003 with 5 fairs: Coeur d Alene, Colfax, Davenport, Deer Park and Spokane. Over the years we have given ribbons to quilts shown in fairs and now we are up to 10 fairs.

Originally WSQ had only awarded one prize to Spokane Interstate Fair. The winner would receive a $100 gift certificate.I proposed that in order to promote quilting in the Inland Empire, perhaps we should expand our awards program. WSQ Board enthusiastically approved of the changes.We first started in 2003 with five fairs: CDA, Colfax, Davenport, Deer Park and Spokane. We expanded to eight fairs (2007): CDA, Clayton, Colfax, Colville, Davenport, Rockford, Ritzville, and Spokane.The board also expanded our awards in 2007 to first place money and ribbon and in addition two more ribbons for each fair (2nd and 3rd place winners). Finally, last year the Board decided to drop the third place winner ribbons, so only two ribbons are awarded by WSQ at each fair.
|CDA - North Idaho Fair ||1st place $25/ribbon||2nd place ribbon|
|Clayton - Clayton Community Fair||1st place $20/ribbon||2nd place ribbon|
|Colfax - Palouse Empire Fair||1st place $20/ribbon||2nd place ribbon|
|Colville - Northeast Washington Fair||1st place $20/ribbon||2nd place ribbon|
|Davenport - Lincoln County Fair||1st place $20/ribbon||2nd place ribbon|
|Ritzville - Wheatland Communities Fair||1st place $20/ribbon||2nd place ribbon|
|Rockford - Southeast Spokane Co. Fair||1st place $20/ribbon||2nd place ribbon|
