We know we have some very talented and creative members within the alpaca world, so again this year we’re giving you the opportunity to show off your skills, talents and wares in our Alpaca Fibre Craft Competition. We would like to have a fantastic display of all the entries at the HoEAG Spring Alpaca Fiesta. Our thanks to Softly Softly for sponsoring the Craft Competition. Mrs. Shirley Bettinson has kindly agreed to judge the competition again and this will take place on Saturday 13th April with the winners being announced later that day.

The Categories are: ALPACA YARN, WEARABLE ITEMS, HOUSEHOLD ITEMS, TOYS, MISCELLANEOUS and THE JUDGE’S CHALLENGE. For 2024 our Judge, Shirley Bettinson, would like you to create a HOUSEHOLD ITEM using alpaca fibre.
