Submitted by Linda Louis–The 32nd annual Tlell Fall Fair is the earliest fall fair in British Columbia. We are a small one-day agricultural fair held in Tlell. This year’s theme is ” Haida Gwaii – Our Garden of Eating.” The fair show cases the Islands culture, arts and agriculture from animals, handicrafts, baking and garden flowers and produce. Anyone can enter! No matter how old or how young you are. It is a wonderful opportunity for you to show your handiwork, gardening, canning or baking skills. Let’s see how you use the theme in one of our many challenges, Photography, quilting, flower arranging, scarecrow to name a few. The craft challenge will be announced within the next month. Doug is putting out a challenge to all the bakers. He’d like to challenge you to bring a decorated cake based on this year’s theme. A few years ago, we had a poster contest. It was well received, so we decided to do it again only change it. Instead of doing a poster we’d like you to make the colouring page for in the catalogue. Here is what we ask: 1. Must be 8 ½ x 11 inches2. Must reflect this year’s theme ( Haida Gwaii – Our Garden of Eating)3. Must have” Tlell Fall Fair 2014″ on it. Please do not put your name on the front or colour it. They are for others to colour. This is open to all children up to and including 12 year olds. Entries can be mailed to box 497 Queen Charlotte B.C. V0T 1SO or dropped off at 315 2nd Ave. QC. Closing date is April 2. Good Luck! Prizes will be awarded. If you have any questions about the fair, please contact Linda 559-8975 or Sewwhat@qcislands.net
