Wool and craft enthusiasts are invited to visit the venue on Friday 19 April to buy fleeces from the national and handcraft fleece competitions, view competition entries in the other classes (sheepskins, handcraft and photographs), and hear two speakers: Loretta Sloan – WOW entrant and a well known fibre artist, will speak about her felting creations and inspiration, and Catherine Jane will speak about using the fleece judging card to inform your choice of fleece to purchase. Catherine will also be available to help select your special fleece if required. Starting at 10am, there will be an entry fee of $5 per person which includes tea or coffee.
