Some of the St. Albert members had done Pedlar's Carts a couple years ago so we had those to begin with. We had a British projects publication that showed a variety of stalls (can't find it right now to tell you the name) so that was a helpful resource and Barb S. had a couple stalls that gave us further ideas.
At our Christmas party, we chose the name "Little Fair on the Prairie" and our May all-day workshop was spent working on stalls and doing a mock set-up of completed work. At that point we knew we had a winner on our hands.
A couple members had found some great variegated cloth to cover the tables with to give them the look of grounds and we ended up with six 6' tables filled with stalls, booths and carts and an additional two 6' tables side by side in the middle which became a picnic/playground area.
After we had set up the fair last Sunday morning (quite a logistical experience!), Holly came in with 12 yards of miniature bunting she had made. It really pulled the whole thing together.
