Garment And Home Accessory Show

FIBER ARTISTS COME AND CELEBRATE THE 2017 WOOL FESTIVAL

We offer this unique opportunity for fiber artists to join us in supporting our regional fiber producers by creating original designs for our 2017 Garment and Home Accessories Show. In honor of the mission of the Mountain and Valley Wool Association who produces the Taos Wool Festival, we request that items entered contain a majority of animal fiber that has been raised in Colorado/New Mexico/Texas. All entries should promote, emphasize, and be "about" animal fiber. Finished fiber goods may contain silk, plant fibers, synthetic fibers, and other materials in a supporting role. Examples are silk warp and synthetic stuffing covered by wool fabrics. NOTE: Non-US supporting Fiber is accepted but not encouraged. Entries may not be from a kit. All entries must have been completed between Nov. 2016 & Sep 30, 2017. Artists are limited to one item per class. Artists may enter multiple items, but they must be in different classes.
