Rabbit Demonstrations

At SAFF this year we have a special treat for Angora rabbit lovers

In addition to any vendors who might have angora rabbits and their lush and lovely fiber or yarns in their booths, we have two people who specialize in fiber rabbits.  Deb Clemens of Mountain Top Fibers and Lori Denley of Serendipity Farms will be displaying their fiber bunnies and presenting free demonstrations throughout SAFF.

You’ll find Deb Clemens in Barn F this year, booth 39-40.  Mountaintop Fibers will have a number of rabbits and will be demonstrating how to care for these animals throughout the fair.  There will be lots of time for questions and answers.

Lori Denley is returning to the upper level of the McGough Arena.  She’ll talk about how to care for these animals as well as how to spin their fiber.  You’ll see a number of different breeds and colors.  There will be lots of time for questions and answers.
