Dear Fiber Guild members,
It is my pleasure to provide information about the 2021 Pennsylvania Make It With Wool contest. This contest is open to any Pennsylvanian who sews, knits, crochets, or weaves garments using wool or wool blends (must be at least 60% animal fiber). The contest is held annually in October, usually at the Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg. The garments that youth and adults create for the competition’s various age categories can be absolutely beautiful. Our state winners in some categories proceed to national competition, sometimes winning national recognition.
I encourage Fiber Guild members to sew, knit, crochet, and/or weave for this contest and have fun creating with wool! More detailed information and the Entry Form (due by September 4) is attached. Please forward to anyone who may be interested in this program for themselves or their students or family members.
Linda Siegel, Director
