2019 Clerk's Choice Award Winner
Petey - Clerk's Choice
The 2019 Clerk's Choice Award went to Petey, a Pembroke Welsh Corgi owned by Claire Geno of Lebanon. For their prize, Petey and Claire received a custom-made pillow from local textile artist Sara Rae Fiber Art. Although the winner was selected in May, the quilting process takes time. Petey’s patience paid off on August 30th when he was able to claim his prize. Petey seems to approve of his pillow!
