About Us

Maryland Make It With Wool is a volunteer based sewing education program and competition primarily for youth. During the Competition, the handmade wool garments are judged for construction quality, fit, fashion and marketability. Divided into four age groups – a junior, senior, and adult are selected to participate in the National Competition. In addition, the top preteen receives a sewing machine.

During the Sewing With Wool School, participants study and practice sewing techniques recommended for wool fabrics. Like most activities in 2020 and 2021, the Wool Schools were cancelled as a result of the pandemic; however, the 2020 Competition was held virtually.

The Maryland Make It With Wool group has been selling Wool Wax Crème as our main fundraiser at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival for over 20 years. Proceeds from the sales of Wool Wax Crème are used to fund the Wool School and to provide wool fabrics, sewing notions and equipment to the participants. It also covers travel expenses for the Maryland winners to attend the National Competition.

In addition to learning about the versatility and beauty of wool, many valuable life skills are developed through the Maryland Make It With Wool program.
