Michelle talks about this pattern
Every weekend from September through October you'll find us at a fall fair. A big attraction around our hometown of Hamilton, Ontario, these fairs celebrate everything from the biggest pumpkin to the best-looking cow to the finest stitchery. We find fall fairs a great way to spend time together as a family, to meet old friends and new, and to honour people who make things.

Our design celebrates not just fairs, but autumn itself ... raking leaves, jumping in leaf piles, the crunch underfoot. This is a great piece to display in the fall, which is, after all, like the start of a new year ... the kids are back in school, the harvest is in, and Mom's returning to her own routine and projects. I keep The Fall Fair hanging up until Halloween, after which our cold November sets in and it's time to start thinking Christmas.

Other uses for this pattern
The horses -- which stand just 12-squares high -- are small enough to stitch above the pocket (or on the collar) of a denim shirt for your favourite rider. The horses would look nifty, too, along a bookmark, as would the tomatoes. The Ferris wheel alone would add some fun to a kitchen, a reminder that next summer isn't really that far away.
