Activities at Highland Alpaca

 The alpacas are so cute you can spend all day looking at them, but our group did provide some activities to celebrate National Alpaca Days, too. Karen organized a needlefelting activity, and Theresa provided beading. We showed people and kids how to needlefelt alpaca fur onto a piece of felt using a cookie cutter form. Kids had alpaca fur to take to school the next day and quite honestly the adults seemed to be fascinated. Beading? Anything Steeler colors was a major hit.
Jenny and Fay had a spinner demonstrating her skills. When Chris wasn't showing someone how to crochet, she was talking to the spinner. I think she also is fascinated but with spinning.
