Welcome to the 2017 Fleece Show and Sale
 

Our aim is to provide the consumer with beautiful healthy, clean fiber suitable for hand spinning. 
Online Registration anticipated to open after Labor Day.
All entries must be done online.

The fleece sale is limited to 700 PAID entries.  Each producer may enter 10 fleeces.  The entry fee is $4.00 per fleece. REGISTRATION WILL CLOSE WHEN THE 700 LIMIT IS REACHED OR ON TUESDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2017.  No late entries will be accepted.

In order to make any changes to your entry, first you must delete that entry and create a new entry with the corrected data.  It will also have a new ID number. Once it is paid for, you cannot change it online. There will be a $5.00 fee per fleece for any changes made after completing the entry process. Please check carefully before submitting.

Fleeces entered must be from this year’s clip, well-skirted and placed in a CLEAR PLASTIC BAG.  The clear bags should be large enough to show the fleece to its best advantage.  DO NOT TIE THE FLEECE OR THE BAG. Fleeces heavily contaminated with vegetation or other debris will not be accepted for sale.  The committee will inspect each entry and the decision of the show managers is final.

One 3x5 index card should be placed in a clear plastic sandwich bag securely taped or stapled to the inside of the fleece bag with the writing showing the following information.

DO NOT PUT YOUR NAME OR FARM NAME ON THIS CARD.  If you wish, you make place a business card or contact information under the fleece at the bottom of the bag.

There will be a 5% commission on all sales.  Sales tax will be collected at the time of sale.  All sales are final.
