PA Farm Show

Yesterday my hubby and I went to the PA Farm Show in Harrisburg. It is a great show with so many things to see. I am particularly interested in the Family Living Center displays. They feature cooking, needlecrafts, photography, nature and I'm sure more that I am missing. Of course, I headed right for the quilts and needlecrafts area! They had a nice selection of quilts and smaller quilted projects on display. I also really enjoyed some of the embroidery and cross stitch projects. If it has anything to do with needlecrafts, you can't go wrong! :-)

They also have a project where you can make a quilt block and enter it in their quilt block contest. They do have monetary prizes, but the best part about doing this is that the blocks that they collect will be put together and quilted the following year at the show and then the next year that will be their raffle quilt. The funds earned from the quilt raffle benefit the Farm Show Scholarship Foundation. I think that is a great idea!
This year they have designed a Pennsylvania Quilters Patch which features a picture of the raffle quilt on the patch. This year is the first in a series of them. I have started my collection and look forward to next year to purchase the next one.

They also have fashion sewing, knitting crocheting and so much more.
There are also many other areas of the show that we enjoyed. They do have many animals to see, things for kids to do, a great food court! and too much too mention.
Below are a couple other things that we saw.

Here is the link if you would like more info about the show.
