The Tennessee Make It with Wool Contest will be Saturday, August 21, at the Wilson County Fair in Lebanon. Dee Wolters, 4-H Volunteer Leader in Maury County, is the Tennessee Make It with Wool state director. The Tennessee Sheep Producers are proud to sponsor the 2021 contest. Deadline to enter is July 31, 2021.
Please inform any interested person in your county about this contest. Divisions are junior (13-16 years); senior (17-24 years); and adult (25 years and older).
Contestants create garment(s) for themselves using wool fabric and fiber by sewing, knitting, crocheting, or felting. Each contestant at the Tennessee state contest will be awarded wool fabric or wool yarn, in addition to fair premiums presented by the Wilson County Fair. The state winners in the junior and senior classes will represent Tennessee at the National Make it With Wool contest in San Diego, CA, on January 20-22, 2022. At the national contest, youth compete for scholarships, sewing equipment, and cash prizes.
Garments will be judged by a panel of judges both on and off the contestant. Contestants will have an opportunity to showcase their sewing skills as well as their knowledge of wool and the sheep industry.
