Roll on up!

Just in case you are sitting around with nothing to do this fine Wednesday, hop on over to the Moda Country Fair - a month long celebration of sewing from September 6th.
The Moda fabric designers have been busy cooking up free designs, wonderful giveaways and a whole lot more inspiration for you to enjoy. The star-studded line up is:

September 13th Sandy Klop from American Jane (Post will be featured on Moda's blog)
September 14th Liesl from Oliver + S
September 19th Barbara Brackman from Barbara Brackman, of course.
September 20th Bonnie from Cotton Way
September 22nd Deb Strain
September 26th Julie from Cosmo Cricket
September 27th Kate Spain
September 29th Kaari from French General
and the fun continues into October
Get y'all over there - you never know what you'll learn! I've already had to Google 'fanny pack' for a translation! Here are just a few things I've picked up: 

American vs Australian Fair vernacular 

country fair (USA) = 'the show' (Aust)

fanny pack (USA) = bum bag (Aust)

corn dog (USA) = dagwood dog (Aust) - no idea why!

cotton candy (USA) = fairy floss (Aust)

hot tamales and candy corn (USA) - remain a complete mystery to me; no Australian equivalent.

And if someone could tell me what a 'cake walk' is, I'd be thankful!

I would love to hear what you call these things in your part of the world, or perhaps you have a special memory of country shows to share.
