I am attaching a copy of our press release with information about the upcoming Georgia Alpaca FiberFest. We have a gorgeous new venue in Columbus, GA, and we hope you will share this information with the rest of the membership. Our vendors are coming from far and wide this year, and we have classes in various fiber arts, including several outstanding spinning, dyeing, and fleece classes. We really appreciate and need the support of your guild!


Thank you,
Karen Cross
