Tapestry is defined as hand woven, weft faced fabric using discontinuous wefts. Artists who work in  both traditional and more experimental tapestry methods are featured.

Oregon State Fair
August 27 - September 6, 2021

2021 Oregon State Fair Is Happening!

 

The fair will open on Friday, August 27, and run through Labor Day, Monday, September 6. It will feature the usual textiles competitions (Fiber Arts [used to be Felting, Spinning and Weaving], Needlework and Clothing and Quilting) though on a bit more limited basis. Competition classes have been simplified. The competition exhibitors’ handbooks will be available in July; read carefully and enter accordingly. Please note that these changes aren’t necessarily permanent.

 

On-line registration of entries will begin in Sho-Works mid-July. The deadline for registration is 10 p.m. August 18. Entries will be accepted at the Fairgrounds on Friday and Saturday, August 20 and 21. Returns will be Tuesday and Wednesday, September 7 and 8, at the fairgrounds. Check the Oregon State Fair website for up to date information.

 

During the fair, there will be no Quilt Walk, no culinary demos, no Jerry Frank chocolate cake competition, no best-of-the-county judging and no hands-on, make-and-take activities. There will be concerts in the amphitheater and, of course, display cases loaded with the competition entries. And ribbons and prizes.

 

So, bring out all those beautiful projects you wove during the lock-down and decide which you will enter in the 2021 Oregon State Fair.
