CREAMERY PA – If you sew, knit, crochet, quilt, bake, make jam, do ceramics or other crafts, it’s coming time once again to show off your talents during the Montgomery County 4-H Fair.
The annual fair, scheduled to be held August 9-11 (2012, Thursday through Saturday) at the county 4-H Center on Route 113 in Creamery, just south of the borough of Skippack, offers public contests in dozens of skill categories like those mentioned, and more. There is no charge to enter, and you may win a blue (first), red (second) or white (third) prize ribbon.
- This event has been added to The Post calendar.
The general rules are fairly simple, and are found online here, 4-H representatives said last week:
- Exhibitors must be residents of Montgomery County.
