Two of my fiber friends just love to enter the State Fair, and have been regulars in the textile categories for many years. Trish Korte and Kevin Schultz, who both were teachers, spend much of their vacations making art, often working together. For instance, this year you can tell that they had cyanotype play days.
Kevin Schultz, first place, surface design (pretty big -- the dress is adult-size)
Trish Korte, first place, stitched fabric construction
But they work in other techniques as well.
Kevin Schultz, second place, stitched fabric construction (an ecoprint of leaves)
Trish Korte, third place, manipulated fiber construction (felting)
Lots of ribbons between the two of them, and lots of beautiful work. Well done!
