Winners of the California MIWW Left to Right: In the adults category – Jennifer Serr; Juniors – Olivia Frenette; Pre-Teen – Kevin Vlach; Seniors – Rebekah Kasperson.

Make It With Wool is a state and national fashion design and sewing or knitting competition sponsored by The American Sheep Industry. Founded in 1947, the competition website says it seeks to “promote the beauty and versatility of wool fabrics, fibers, and yarns.” MIWW is open to pre-teens through adults and all fabric and yarn used must be at least 60 percent wool. Three judges look for excellence in presentation and appearance, construction, and marketability.

The California Make It With Wool (MIWW) competition and fashion show was held on November 12th in Orinda. The four winners are now eligible for the national MIWW contest to be held in Texas in January, 2023.

I attended the fashion show in Orinda and was pleased to see such talent and interest in sewing and knitting. Many of the young contestants learned to sew in 4H. I noticed a vintage feel to some of the entries. Jennifer Serr, winner in the adult category, used a 1930s suit pattern (see photo above).

Calling all those who sew and/or knit! Why not show off your talent and skills next year? Check out the MIWW website for more information and contacts.

Congratulations to all the winners of the 2022 California Make It With Wool Contest.
