Largess Derby

We will be holding a largess donation derby at Village Faire! 
The goal is to create a collection of largess that can be used for gift baskets for investitures, coronations and wars.

Rules for Entry

  • All entrants must create 12 items that are suitable for largess. For example: 12 needle books, 12 hats from different (or the same) period, 12 pieces of jewelry, 12 children’s toys. 12 socks would not be suitable as that is only 6 pairs.
  • All entries must be tagged and ready to be gifted the day of the competition.
  • Fiber content and ingredients should be listed for any items that contain possible allergens.
  • Entries need not be documentable, as this is not an Arts and Science competition.
  • Items should not have specific heraldry on them as they are meant to be given to other areas.
  • Judging will be done by the “bead in a cup” method.
  • All entrants must register their entries with the organizers at time of competition.

Over the Top

  • To be eligible for an Over the Top prize, you must enter 3 or more entries (3 sets of a dozen items).
  • All 3 entries must be in different categories. For example: an entry of jewelry, an entry of needle books, and an entry of wooden dice would be eligible. 
  • An entry of necklaces, an entry of bracelets, and an entry of earrings would not be eligible.
  • If there is any question of if your entries would qualify, or if you would like to donate an Over the Top prize, please contact the organizers.


The winner will choose one item from each of the entries. (If there are 12 entrants, the winner will receive 12 items.) 
In addition, a special token will be given to each entrant to commemorate the occasion.
