about this pattern
Every weekend from September through October you'll
find us at a fall fair. A big attraction around

among the stitching and quilts. The horses are
another big draw, with many fairs featuring Western
and English riding, barrel racing and heavy horse
teams. Most Saturday nights showcase a demolition
derby with lots of noise, smoke and cheers. (See
