Cloverville was the part of one wing devoted to 4-H projects.
Some of the photography and paintings were not bad. Most of the folkart was uninspired but I will share a favorite here.
Above is the horseshoe bootrack. The stand was made almost entirely of horseshoes. The crossbar was a piece of rebar. The whole thing was painted black.
This was easily Kit’s favorite household art piece.
There were several entires for table setting and message boards—two categories I had no clue existed.
Most of the clothing looked like ancient maccall patterns but this dress really spoke to me. The size was so tiny that the back didn’t zip on the manakin. The little seamstress that put this together must be quite petite. I would pay her to make one in my size. Beautiful simple dress.
