Last Year's Fair Winners
Click here for a list of all the people who were awarded WSQ's 1st-3rd place ribbons in 2013 community/county fairs.
To enlarge photos of the quilts that were awarded 1st place ribbons by WSQ in 2013 click on the picture.
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/ribbon||2nd & 3rd ribbons|
|Clayton - Clayton Community Fair||1st place $20/ribbon||2nd & 3rd ribbons|
|Colfax - Palouse Empire Fair||1st place $20/ribbon||2nd & 3rd ribbons|
|Colville - Northeast Washington Fair||1st place $20/ribbon||2nd & 3rd ribbons|
|Davenport - Lincoln County Fair||1st place $20/ribbon||2nd & 3rd ribbons|
|Ritzville - Wheatland Communities Fair||1st place $20/ribbon||2nd & 3rd ribbons|
|Rockford - Southeast Spokane Co. Fair||1st place $20/ribbon||2nd & 3rd ribbons|
|Spokane - Spokane Interstate Fair||1st place $50/ribbon||2nd & 3rd ribbons|
