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!
