  • The Winners of 2014 County Fairs
    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.
    Click here for more information. Deadlines and contacts for entering your quilt in 2015 fairs will be posted later. Start looking in July for the information.

    Click here for the complete list of 1st to 3rd place WSQ ribbon winners.

    Spokane Interstate Fair




    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).

    CDA - North Idaho Fair 1st place $25/ribbon2nd & 3rd ribbons
    Clayton - Clayton Community Fair1st place $20/ribbon2nd & 3rd ribbons
    Colfax - Palouse Empire Fair1st place $20/ribbon2nd & 3rd ribbons

    It's time to add another 'wish list of to-dos' to your bucket list! Enter your beautiful quilt creations at your local fair.

    Win a WSQ ribbon and perhaps win first, for a cash prize that you can buy more fabric at your favorite quilt shop.

    Good Luck and See you at the Fair!

    2015 Information and deadlines(usually in August or September) for Inland Empire Fairs will be posted here later. Support your local fair and start thinking about which quilts YOU would like to enter.
