Welcome to the Guild’s 2021 Saanich Fair Fall Challenge! The ten categories chosen to represent the range of items usually in the fibre-related displays at the Fair are each displayed in a separate gallery below. Please enjoy the show! Makers of these items will have an opportunity to present and talk about their work at our September meeting.

If you want to see the photos enlarged just click on any picture and each photo will be enlarged. Some photos will not enlarge any further.  You can scroll left and right through the photos using the arrows (or other haptic techologies if your device permits!) In this larger view, you can vote for your favourite items by clicking the “heart”     at the top of the screen.

Voting has closed on September 16 at 9am for the 2021 Saanich Fair Challenge. The category winners are marked with virtual “ribbons”.  Please join us for the September Guild Zoom meeting to hear from the makers of these wonderful items!
