California takes “Do It Yourself” to a whole new level! The California State Fair’s 2018 Craft Exhibit highlights the best of California’s handmade items. Come view an array of beautiful handmade creations including intricate porcelain painting, handmade dolls, clothes, jewelry, and beautiful array of quilts. This year’s special contests include a Crafting a Brighter Future contest where all items entered will be donated to either Project Linus or Newborns in Need, and a Steampunk Fashion contest judged by celebrity guest judge Ave Rose.
Funded in part by the Sacramento Convention & Visitors Bureau through funds generated by the Sacramento Tourism Assessment Fee.
You may notice this year’s guidebooks are now split between Handcrafts and Needle and Fiber Arts. The Handcrafts competition now has a juried acceptance which requires a photo upload to your entries. Check the guidebook for full instructions on how to enter. The Needle and Fiber Arts guide will contain all of your needle art competitions, the quilting competition and the special contests.
