Entering the Royal Hobart Show or another Agricultural Show

Have you ever visited your local show and viewed the knitted, felted, crocheted, hand spun and hand dyed items and thought I can do that or I would like to enter.  Well you too can enter. It is not a secret society or elves in the cupboard producing these items. 

It is ordinary men and women who have put some time aside to showcase and improve their crafting. I have previously bitten the bullet and entered, my heart was in my mouth when I put my entry in, but I won a prize and received a highly commended. I was totally stoked. 

These show events will pass away if people do not enter. So I urge you to think about entering, check out the categories, pick a category, check out your patterns and yarn. think some more - but do it quickly.  Adapt and change the patterns if you want to - it all depends on the category you choose. Create something from no pattern - some wonderful crafters out there do this.

Create your piece, pay particular attention to your  blocking and finishing - this is as important as creating the pieces of the work. Attend the information session. 

All the information you need to enter can be found on the Royal Agricultural Show Hobart website. Other sites that you should check out are Bream Creek Show, Campbelltown Show and the Houn Show.
