Incentive Fabric for New MIWW Participants

Wool fabric has been donated by past MIWW contestants and area fiber artists to be given away at no cost to new MIWW contestants - of any age!  If you have never entered the MIWW contest, but would like to get involved, you can choose a piece of wool fabric from the "Incentive Stash" to use for your first MIWW project!  This wool has already been tested for the contest too!

Contact Ann Hansen or Patty DeZeeuw for more information on this special incentive.
