Introduction : The Suri Network's All-Suri Fleece Show is the largest Suri fleece show in North America, and perhaps the world! The 2021 fleece show is a MAIL-IN Fleece Show and will be judged at the Comfort Suites hotel in Lebanon, TN.  This fleece show immediately follows the AOA National Fleece Show and Suri Network volunteers will be happy to transport your fleeces from that show to the Suri Network show just a few miles away! Karl and Jan Heinrich of New Era Fiber have graciously agreed to accept your fleeces and transport them to the show. Fleeces must be received by Saturday, July 10th. Thanks Karl and Jan!

This year we are going to hold the Skein and Fiber Arts competitions after the Suri Network Fleece Show. This will allow competitors to enter their skeins and fiber artwork in both the AOA National Fleece Show as well as the Suri Network Fleece Show.

OPEN TO ALL SURI OWNERS - INCLUDING INTERNATIONAL!
The All-Suri Fleece Show is open to any Suri owner, including International competitors- not just members of the Suri Network!
We hope you will consider joining the Suri Network to enjoy the many benefits we offer including discounted entry fees!  International entrants may also use the online registration (link above) to register their fleeces.  The AOA Show membership fee is waived for International entrants. The Show Superintendent will contact International entrants to review your entry and provide instruction on sending in your registration data from your home country.

SPIN-OFF COMPETITION:
The Suri Network is excited to have AOA certified Spin-Off Judge Karen Champion judging our Handcrafter Spin-Off Competition. Karen is a wonderful hand spinner and fiber artist, and owns her own store for the fiber arts in Englewood, Colorado. As an alpaca owner she understands how important it is to have feedback on your spinoff sample. To find out more about entering your fleece samples for the Spin-Off competition,

REGULAR FLEECE SHOW: 
We are excited to have Judges Sharon Loner and Dianna Timmerman- both AOA and Internationally certified judges- as our fleece judges this year. Neither of these judges need introduction for they have been part of judging suri alpacas for many years, both in halter and in the fleece room. This is a mail in fleece show that will be judged following the AOA National Fleece show in Lebanon, Tennessee on July 13th and 14th. For helpful information about submitting fleeces READ MORE

SKEIN COMPETITION: The skein competition is also being judged by Karen Champion. Skeins can be either hand-spun or commercial spun. You do not need to be a member of the AOA Show System to enter the Suri Network Skein competition READ MORE

FIBER ARTS: Karen Champion is also judging our fiber arts competition.  You don't have to be a Suri owner to submit an entry in our fiber arts competition. In fact, you don't have to be an artist either! We invite Suri owners to encourage their fiber artist friends to show off their talents by entering their creations in our show. Suri owners may want to sponsor an entrant or provide yarn or fleece from their Suris with which the artist can create a piece. For additional information about entering  CLICK HERE
