The Pennsylvania Farm Show celebrated its 100 year last week with a packed house of visitors. Although it meant squeezing through crowds, and walking what seemed like miles, I managed to find my way to the clothing and textiles exhibits. Below are pictures of the top prize winners.


This hand-sewn quilt is truly remarkable.
I don’t even want to think about how many
hours Ms. Koontz needed to make it.
What an achievement!

Each entry had an identification. This is Ms. Koontz’s.
