This was our fifth year with the Wine and Food Festivities and to tell you the truth our talent is like wine the older we get the better it produce.

Among some of the designs were The Dear Sweet Cupcake Dress designed by Christian Tinson and the Marshmallow Fondue dress Designed by Lorena Pires that placed first place. The garments all were crafted to resemble a food or to have some type of food included in the garments. The show was a success. We look forward to next year’s showing.
