Thank You for a Great Week of Donations!

Posted by Eleda Towle on

When we work together, we can make positive changes in our world! Starting with Giving Tuesday this week, Triple Mountain pledged to donate 20% of our total sales to the non-profit Starting Point of NH, a women's shelter and organization fighting domestic abuse.  We want to thank you all for your support through purchases this week, which have raised over $191.56 for Starting Point!  We'll make it an even $200, and that money will help pay for utilities at the home the organization keeps as a shelter, or to purchase fuel to help pick up women and children in crisis...

Fun at the schooling show!

Posted by Eleda Towle on

The part I am so excited about with these schooling shows is that everyone who participates can also judge each class!  Exhibitors are given judging sheets and shown how to fill them out properly for results to be recorded by the show host afterward.  Experienced judges mingle with first-timers to provide their thoughts on what is important to them, helping train the eyes of those who are new to judging.  They are also encouraged to bring along ribbons or awards for each placing, and to be creative with them, as long as they adhere to the standard color scheme so everyone knows the order they were placed.  We saw some awesome ideas for simple placings:  Everything from printed paper ribbons to foam shapes to seashells... even wrapped chocolates and poker chips!
