THE 2020 SURI NETWORK
Introduction : The Suri Network's All-Suri Fleece Show is the largest Suri fleece show in North America, and perhaps the world! The 2021 fleece show is a MAIL-IN Fleece Show and will be judged at the Comfort Suites hotel in Lebanon, TN. This fleece show immediately follows the AOA National Fleece Show and Suri Network volunteers will be happy to transport your fleeces from that show to the Suri Network show just a few miles away! Karl and Jan Heinrich of New Era Fiber have graciously agreed to accept your fleeces and transport them to the show. Fleeces must be received by Saturday, July 10th. Thanks Karl and Jan!
This year we are going to hold the Skein and Fiber Arts competitions after the Suri Network Fleece Show. This will allow competitors to enter their skeins and fiber artwork in both the AOA National Fleece Show as well as the Suri Network Fleece Show.
TO ALL SURI OWNERS - INCLUDING INTERNATIONAL!

In fact, you don't have to be an artist either! We invite Suri owners to encourage their fiber artist friends to show off their talents by entering their creations in our show. Suri owners may want to sponsor an entrant or provide yarn or fleece from their Suris with which the artist can create a piece. For additional information about entering CLICK HERE
