It Is Time for the Sunfield Farmers Picnic Open Class Craft Exhibit

The Sunfield Farmers Picnic on August 16 and 17, 2024, is not very far away. IT IS TIME … if you are planning to enter the Open Class Craft Exhibit on Saturday, August 17 to begin preparing your entry such as your hand-crafted articles and homemade canned goodies and baked goods. All ages are eligible. Sunfield and its surrounding communities have many talented people and this event is an opportunity for you to show your talent off to the rest of the community.

Categories will include art, baked goods, canned goods, carving, ceramic, flowers and silk flower arrangements, garden produce, glass etching, needlework, knitting, crocheting, cross stitch, leatherwork, painting, paper craft, quilts, sewing, woodworking and of course photography: animals, nature, people and other. Craft vendors can also enter their items. Other entries not fitting these categories will be entered under “Other”. As always, there are a few rules, such as the work must be your own, not from a kit. Baked goods must be made without commercial mixes. Each entry is judged on its own merit and each category may have a “Best of Show” ribbon awarded at the judge’s discretion.

All entries need to be brought to the Floyd Van Buren Park on Logan Street, Sunfield, from 8:00 to 9:45 a.m. Saturday, August 17, 2024. Judging will begin promptly at 10:00 a.m. Each entry will be judged on its own merit. Cash prizes and ribbons will be awarded.

All Children who enter the Open Class Craft Exhibit, must have their entry forms signed by a parent. Each entry must have an entry form. Entry forms will be available at the Sunfield District Library, Mapes Furniture, Marko’s Citgo and the Welch Historical Museum the beginning of August. For additional information, you can contact the event’s chairperson, DeAnna Clark, at 517-231-2527 or email
