MIDWEST SHEARING PARTY

Rosalie hosted a shearing party at her farm in St. Louis in September.  Here are the rabbits waiting to be sheared.  Looks like they have a body guard!

Everyone will be meeting again in December to have the rabbits judged and shear again expecting their animals to meet the minimum wool weight of 325 grams.

2010 Annual General Meeting in Frankenmuth, Michigan

The fun started at Sue’s with registration and a felting workshop on Thursday.  Here is Joyce posing with her beautiful black German doe in Sue’s yard.

On Friday, everyone was at Zeilinger’s for the big tour, more workshops and more rabbit testings and registrations. 

The Zeilinger staff graciously allowed us to use their facilities for a workshop Friday morning.  The tour consisted of the carding facilities, the sock machines, the quilting area, and of course the spinnery.

Kate Zeilinger was on hand to show us the carding and sock making facilities with Gary and Dodi demonstrating how the spinning equipment works.

Here, Gary is showing Michaele how the yarn is made.
