The Make It With Wool Contest has been promoting the versatility, beauty and wearability of wool since 1947! Contestants of all ages, from pre-teens through adults, sew, knit, crochet, weave or felt wool garments, which are judged on quality and presentation.

Washington’s state contest will be held on Saturday, October 19th at Sewing and Design School in Tacoma. Mini-workshops or question/answer sessions on working with wool may be held during the construction judging, and suggestions will be offered to those advancing to nationals!
