AMARILLO -- Folks in the panhandle are gearing up for the Tri-State Fair.
With only a few weeks away, some are preparing with their sewing needle.
Local Sewing Instructor Becky Davis says, "nearly a dozen young girls from her class will enter their sewing projects for the first time in the Tri-State Fair contest."
She says it's a great opportunity for them.
Davis hopes to encourage more girls to do it in the future
The Tri-State Fair kicks off on September 12 and continues through the 20.
