Wool Challenge 2010-2011

Participants will:

  • Sign up with the chapter and receive a strip of wool 3″ x 18″ provided by the chapter
  • Use the majority of the wool – AS IS – no over dyeing
  • Use cut of your choice
  • May use embellishments of your choice
  • Use a pattern of your choice – original, adaptation or commercial design
  • Bring finished mat to upcoming meetings for a chance at a special door prize
  • Bring finished mat for display at the April 2011 meeting and be entered into the contest for the completed mats

This challenge is not a swap. Your mats may be of any size and theme. You just need to include the provided wool within your hooking.

Update*

It was fun to see how everyone used the wool. Completed challenge mats were displayed at the Cumberland Fair.
