Wool Works™ Magazine is All About Wool . . .

Wool Works ™ Magazine is about creativity and imagination. We celebrate rug hooking, wool applique, quilting and other hand-arts created with wool.

Wool Works™ Magazine is published four times a year in the spring, summer, fall and winter.  We welcome submission of your original project made with wool, including but not limited to hooked rugs, applique, quilts, penny rugs, dolls and punch needle projects created with wool threads or embellished with wool.

Provide at least two high resolution photographs of your design from different angles.  The photographs should be clear representations of your project and should be taken against attractive backgrounds and props, as they may be used by us for publication. Please email your photographs to us, or alternately mail them to Wool Works™ Magazine, 11132 Tioga, Boise, Idaho 83709. Be sure to include your name, company name (if applicable) address, telephone number and email address. By submitting a project, you acknowlege it is your own design, that it has never been released, published or sold elsewhere, and that you are legally entitled to claim the design as your own work. Please allow up to four weeks for consideration of your design for publication.

If we accept your design for publication, we will contact you with further instructions, including specific information on how to submit your pattern instructions and other info. This may include requesting additional photographs of your project and other information. We pay a standard licensing fee of $200.00 per project and own all publication rights for a period of six months from the date of publication of the issue in which your design appears. Payment is made on or about the time of publication. The publishing schedule for Wool Works™ Magazine is:

  • Spring Issue (covers months of February, March and April)
    Publishes in January each year
  • Summer Issue (covers months of May, June and July)
    Publishes in April each year
  • Fall Issue (covers months of August, September and October)
    Publishes in July each year
  • Winter-Holiday Issue (covers months of November, December and January)

Wool Works™ Magazine is not just for “popular” designers. We encourage and recognize fresh talent. If you have experience in creating and selling your patterns on your own website, in quilt stores or through Etsy or other hand-arts sites, we welcome your design submission.
