REEDER MASONRY AND CHIMNEY SWEEP
Pike County Sweeps the Sew With Cotton Contests. This contest is sponsored by Farm Bureau and is held during their annual convention at the Convention Center in Little Rock. Maria Eatmon, the 15 year old daughter of Ace and Brenda Eatmon of Delight, won sweepstakes in the junior division of the Sew With Cotton Contest held last week. Maria made brown gauchos, and a print western shirt which featured yokes and a band down the front edged with brown piping. She is a member of the Delightful Helping Hands 4-H club. Tracy Lamb, also of Delight, won sweepstakes in the adult division with brown corduroy jeans, and a print open collar blouse. She knitted a red and green shawl and leggings which could be reversed to compliment her outfit. Both of these winners received $400 in prize money and a Husqvarna Viking serger valued at $700. The third contestant from our county was Yvonne Edwards, of Kirby, who placed second with a beautiful bargello baby quilt in shades of purple fabric. This is the first time a quilt/wall hanging category was available. Her prize was $250.
Each county may send one contestant to the Sew With Cotton contest in adult divisions of Dressy Cotton Ensemble, and Cotton Sportswear. Junior divisions are: Dressy Cotton Ensemble, and Cotton Sportswear / School wear. A Special Category is for clothing made for someone else. The Quilt/Wall Hanging category was new this year. Both the Special and Quilt categories are open to both youth and adult. Garments must be made by the contestant and must be 100 percent cotton fabric. For more information about this contest for next year, please contact County Extension Agent - Eva Langley at 870-285-2161.
Pike County Farm Bureau's Women's Committee sponsored a booth at the Community Trunk or Treat held on the square in downtown Murfreesboro Halloween night. The event was a success and everyone enjoyed a spooktacular time.
