Fun for Youth at the Folklife Fair


Plan to make time for family activities at the "Kids' Fluff" booth at the Folklife Fair in Hailey.   Bring your children so they can explore fiber arts at their own level.  Join us!  No pre-registration is required so you can just show up and enjoy. (Parents of children aged seven and under are asked to stay with their children during the scheduled classes.)
Special thanks to Kathi Kimball, 4H leader and staff expert from the University of Idaho/Blaine County Extension office, for coordinating!!!



Make It With Wool is an annual youth-centered sewing competition to promote the beauty and versatility of wool fabrics, yarns, and fibers. It encourages personal creativity in sewing, knitting, crocheting, spinning, weaving, and other needlework arts.

The Idaho Make It With Wool Competition is sponsored by the Idaho Wool Growers Association. The top junior and senior contestant qualify to attend the National Competition at the American Sheep Industry Convention in Denver Colorado.
