Getting crafty by Caleb Nickerson

 The 2017 Fair Ambassador, Avery Richardson is taking part in the homecraft division, where there will be several new categories to celebrate Canada 150. She poses with some of her artwork that she plans on submitting.

When you think of the Shawville Fair, the first thing to come to mind is usually the agriculture competitions or the midway. But tucked away in the Ag Hall is a competition just as fierce as the animal showing going on in the arena: the homecraft competition.
Participants can submit their own hand crafted items like quilts or artwork to any of the over 30 divisions. Avery Richardson, the 2017 Fair Ambassador and ambassador for homecraft said that she has been submitting her work since she was five and usually enters a wide variety of categories.
