GREENVILLE — Four men and five women were awarded rosettes Tuesday in the Domestic Arts competition at the Great Darke County Fair.

Kenny Coates Jr. not only won a rosette for his Grandstand but he also was named best of show with that entry.

Tim Nealeigh also received two rosettes. However, it was in different classes; one for his reproduction dress and the other for his crocheted bed/lady/bassinet.

Additional winners were:

— Barb Lavy for her hand-quilted quilt.

— Laura Hinders for her multi-color knitted afghan.

— Anna Mae Johnson for her color embroidered table centerpiece.

— Jane Sewell for her tatting horse.

— Barb Hodson for her coverlet.

— Jerry Manning for a fretwork covered bridge.

— Ken Pence for his USS Constitution Ship entry.

Betsy Nisonger, secretary of the Domestic Arts Department, said entries were down this year by just a few — about 20 items.

“There were 183 exhibitors with 148 different winners and 1,024 entries,” she said.
