We are busily planning for the SAFF 2013 Hand Spinner’s Fleece Shows. Last year was one of our largest shows; we registered 453fleeces for show and sale. We also made some changes to our processes, learned a few things, and are planning some more changes for this year. Our goal is to grow this fleece show into one of the best shows in the southeast. To work our way towards this goal, we are again working on improving the registration of fleeces and associated paperwork that is necessary to make the process of showing and selling a grower’s fleece as easy as possible.
Here are some of the changes we are planning for this year: incentives for early registration, refinement of registration form and process of SAFF pricing, and allowance of sale of half fleeces and expansion of types of fiber accepted for sale. Make sure you check out the policies and procedures, and the online registration form, including the helpful hints and tricks that might be useful.
We have also added a few documents to our web page that have useful information. Jennifer Fleury’s How to Prepare a Fleece is back, and we have added a FAQ’s list.
We look forward to seeing you this fall.
