Greetings from Suri Network BoardThe year has flown by, and the holiday season is upon us. It would be interesting to hear what you are doing on your farms for the holidays. Don’t forget that Suri Network members can list their events on the website.
What's Been Happening at Suri Network:
The All-Suri Network Fleece show was held in July in northern Kentucky. Dawn Browning was the Show superintendent with Judy Schroeder’s support as they steered us through another great show. Stephanie Glyptis and Arturo Pena were the judges. There were increased numbers in the fleece show, fiber arts, spin-off, and skein entries. Thanks to our sponsors and volunteers as we cannot have the event without your support. Congratulations to all the winners!
In August several Suri Network members attended Education with a Destination in Bend Oregon. SN sponsored a booth which showed Suri products and a display board that provided educational information about Suri fiber and blends. Cheryl Gehly focused on Suri fiber in 2 break-out sessions and Tim Sheets presented the History of Alpacas and the Suri Alpaca.
It was my privilege to announce the Jim Barker and Judy Steele awards for 2022 at our annual meeting.
Congratulations to Amanda Vandenbosch for the Jim Barker Suri Network Ambassador Award and Mary Lou Clingan for the Judy Steele Suri Network Creativity Award. Send your congratulations to both of our winners.
