Carrie Fancett Pagels Interviews Character Sarah Richmond
CFP: Sarah, I am so excited your story, "Requilted with Love", has released in Barbour Publishing's new release -- The Blue Ribbon Brides Collection! It is out ahead of its November 1st release date! How do you feel about that?
Sarah: How thrilling to be out in society!!! I can't wait for readers to "meet" me. Ladies -- please watch out for those two fair workers, Grant and Lee, there is something just a little suspicious about them!
CFP: Speaking of Grant and Lee. How did they get their names?
Sarah: (Rolls eyes.) I am guessing Grant was named for the famous Union General and Lee for the Confederate general. As you can guess, they aren't from the same part of the country!
CFP: Well what brings you to the fair, Miss Richmond?
Sarah: I have lost my two fiancés. And I'd made a wedding ring quilt that I had requilted with appliqués on top. I want to win the Blue Ribbon Prize and have the opportunity to tell folks how our hospitals in the Upper Peninsula need to be better supported by our state.
CFP: That's certainly admirable, Sarah. Are you enjoying your time at the fair?
Sarah: The 1889 Michigan State Fair is a superb one. I'm so excited because this gorgeous fairgrounds in Lansing is meant to give the fair a permanent home. No more moving around from city to city! Everything is so new and beautiful.
CFP: That sounds amazing, Sarah! I wish I could be there to see it! Is Grant as gorgeous as the grounds are?
Sarah: (Cheeks turn red.) The ladies at the fair seem to think so. I'm more impressed by the help he's given me, although I could do without him fussing at me about my choices. And his and Lee's hovering is interfering with me and Denise, my friend, being able to go freely about the grounds by ourselves. We are grown women, for goodness sake!
CFP: Hmmmm, sounds like Grant and Lee might be protective of you and Miss Drefs.
Sarah: Time will tell. I believe their jobs as groundskeepers has put them in our paths a great deal. But they sure don't speak or act like the other fair employees I've met.
CFP: Thank you, Sarah, for the interview!
