Creative Garments Made With Wool
The national Make It With Wool competition (MIWW) promotes wool’s beauty and versatility and recognizes excellence and creativity in garment sewing and knitting. Garments must be made from fashion fabrics and yarns that are at least 60 percent wool. Contestants compete in skill categories and age groups: 13- to 16-year-olds compete as juniors; 17- to 24-year-olds compete as seniors; and those ages 25 and over compete as adults. State winners advance to the national judging round, which is in January. The Adult and Fashion/Apparel Design winners are preselected and receive all-expenses-paid trips to the national competition to model their creations. In this article from Threads #188 (December 2016/January 2017), Threads highlights seven individuals who won awards in the January 2016 national judging round.
