Leah Thomas was selected state junior winner in the 2015 “Make It With Wool” Competition. She will represent North Carolina at the National Competition in Scottsdale, Arizona, in January. The competition is held in conjunction with the American Sheep Industry Conference.
Thomas constructed her three-piece outfit — jacket, blouse and skirt — from 100 percent wool. Leah, a junior at Forbush High School, is the daughter of Marc and Leanne Thomas of East Bend.
