  • 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.

    Colfax (Palouse Empire Fair): Tami Drader

    Colville (Northeast County Fair): Stella Berendsen
    Davenport (Lincoln County Fair): Eva Reimer

    Moses Lake (Grant County Fair): Carole Johnson

    Coeur d'Alene (North Idaho Fair): Carla Jentry

    (Ferry County Fair): Marlene Oddie

    (Wheat Land Communities Fair): Yvonne Andersen

    Rockford (Southeast County Fair): Chris Mewhinney

    Spokane Interstate Fair: Shelby Whitson

    Clayton Community Fair: Sally Hopson

    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
