MOBILE, Ala. – The cool, comfort of cotton proved to be more than the perfect fashion for the hot, humid weather in Alabama's port city of Mobile. It was also the spotlight of the annual Cotton Sewing Contest sponsored by the Alabama Farmers Federation's Women's Leadership Division today.

The contest was held in conjunction with the Federation's 40th Annual Commodity Producers Conference that began Thursday. In addition to some of the state's top seamstresses who displayed homemade aprons and quilts, several ladies display their creative talents in the annual Tablescapes Contest that spotlights Alabama commodities as table settings.

Pat Schrand of Coffee County won first place in the Apron Contest. Brenda Curry of Dale County took second and Ruby Nuss of St. Clair County won third.

In the Youth Apron Contest, Kayla Sarro of Talladega County won first place, Tallie Schaffer of Cullman County finished second, and Sarah Swain of Calhoun County took third.

Margaret Caldwell of Talladega County won first place in the Hand-Stitched Quilt Contest. Delores Mount of Crenshaw County was the second-place winner, and Ruby Nuss of St. Clair won third.

Gayle Smith of Limestone County won first place in the Machine-Stitched Quilt Contest. Gail Oden of Etowah County won second, and Margaret Caldwell of Talladega County finished third.

In the Tablescapes Contest, Carolyn Hill of Talladega County won first place, while June Flowers of Pike County finished second, and Rhonda Hughes of Jefferson County won third.

Winners in each division received cash awards of $150 for first place, $100 for second place and $75 for third place. For more information about the Federation's Women's Leadership Division, visit http://www.alfafarmers.org/programs/womens_division.phtml..
