On Sunday January 26th, at our regular guild meeting, Erica Fire will
demonstrate the essentials of working with rabbit fiber, and will discuss
her long-term involvement with rabbits as fiber animals. Pure breed
angoras are not the only rabbits that will produce glorious luxury fibers.
Erica will share her experiences working with the fiber of
rescue-rabbits.This is sure to be a memorable event. Erica is a delightful
speaker, combining years of experience and a rigorous analytical approach
with an effervescent sense of humor. You’ll learn, you’ll laugh,
you’ll go home wondering if you could add a rabbit or two to your life.

project and a bag lunch.
