Conferences & Workshops

The Suri Symposium ~ August 3-4 ~ Loveland, CO

The Suri Symposium is the ultimate experience in seeing what is happening in the suri world.  The progress being made in suri fleece and products is dramatically demonstrated.  There is a suri fashion show, entertaining and educational speakers, a dinner, a live auction, and a chance to get together with suri owners to discuss the future of the Suri breed.  We highly recommend it!

AOA National Fiber Extravaganza 2018 ~ July 13-15 ~ Nashville, TN

This event is essentially the National Fleece Show, where alpaca breeders from all over the country will submit fleeces for judging.  There will also be educational sessions, vendors of alpaca goods, and lots of fun.  It's a great event to learn lots and meet fellow alpaca enthusiasts.  And a great excuse to visit Nashville!

The Fabulous Fiber Retreat ~ January 13-15, 2019 ~ Temecula, CA

The Fabulous Fiber Retreat began as a casual Facebook conversation and has turned into a much-anticipated annual event.  It's a great opportunity to learn new fiber art skills, play with your favorite fiber toys, meet like-minded friends, and share amazing meals at the retreat center dining hall.  Right in the middle of Wine Country, too.  Sign up early-- spaces are limited.
