    Hello,

    I am thinking of entering some things that I have made into our fair. How does this usually work? I made these outfits for my children to wear in the fair pageant. The only problem I am having is that my serger isn't doing so well, and the tension keeps messing up. How do they judge the clothing? I know it is on contruction, but am I marked off a lot for the serger tension? I sewed the garment first, and then used the serger to finish the edges. I am attaching a couple of picture of the outfits. I also digitized the embroidery/applique design myself.

    Thanks,
    Debbie

    Can you download an Entry booklet for your local fair and see if it says what the criteria is for judging?
