For those of you who aren’t in the Alpaca-know, British Alpaca Futurity is a yearly Alpaca enthusiasts event which usually takes place (as it is this year) at Stoneleigh Park Conference Centre, near Coventry. It’s a great event for owners, breeders, enthusiasts and designers from around the world. As well as stands of alpaca knitwear etc, lectures for the die-hards there’s always lots going on in the central ring.
Last year Kerry had a great time catching up with old friends in the alpaca world and making new contacts, from breeders to avid alpaca only knitters. One of the highlights of the show is the Fashion Show on Saturday night and Toft Alpaca Shop will again being sending several models down the catwalk with some of our new 2011/12 designs during the showcase of UK designers. Here are some photos of the catwalk show last year – we had to count all the Bulb Bags back in carefully because the models loved them so much!
If you live in the Warwickshire area it’s really worth a look in and to whet your appetite BBC Coventry & Warwickshire will be featuring live interviews tomorrow morning with the Futurity organisers and Saturday morning with Toft Alpaca Shop’s own Kerry talking about all the goings on!
