The VER together with VYTEC have been invited to be part of the Lilydale Alpaca Show.

It has been decided to make it an alpaca promotional event this year! 

Lilydale Alpaca PADDOCK to PRODUCT 

Sunday 18th November

This is the regions opportunity to showcase all things Australian alpaca including but not limited to:-

  • Fleece
  • Yarn
  • Garments
  • Craft/books
  • Felting
  • Weaving
  • Spinning
  • Knitting
  • Meat
  • Photo opportunity with alpacas
  • Alpaca handling education/hands on opportunities
  • Young Alpaca Paraders Competition – run by VYTEC

We are fortunate to have been offered the Chandler Pavilion (26 X 8 meters) so weather will not be a problem.

As one of the coordinators of this event I am seeking expressions of interest from those who wish to:-

  • Secure a stall to sell their product, cost for a 1.8 trestle table space is $50

 

  • Showcase/display their skills, eg weaving, felting, spinning, knitting – FOC if not selling.  I would appreciate if you can circulate this to all those crafts people and artists out there who may be interested in displaying their skills.

 

  • Help required on the day:-

o   Alpaca photo area

o   Alpaca handling area

o   Fleece education/supervision

o   Alpaca display pen area

  • Display alpacas – both suri and huacaya are required, are you able to bring animals?

If you are interested in being part of this alpaca showcase please contact

Lynda Holdsworth.

We will try to accomodate all but space is limited.

I think this is an exciting opportunity and I am hoping many of you will wish to be involved in promoting alpacas in our region.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
