This exhibit features the home arts and skills that have been a part of county fairs since they began. A blue ribbon for the best pie or quilt is as valued today as it was a century ago. In addition to displays of textile, crafts and cooking projects, this exhibit also awards ribbons and prizes for the best collections, some traditional, some unique.
