Washington State Make It With Wool Contest

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. In Washington, contests are held at six district locations throughout the state. The winners advance to the Washington state competition, and those winners advance to the national contest!
