Bluefaced Leicester National Show competitions
The sheep show is on Friday, May 25th at 3PM. This is your chance to see sheep from top flocks all over the country.
On Saturday, we've got lots of cool activities to highlight the BFL planned for all day long. There is a SPECIAL fleece, skein, fiber art, and photography competition that anyone can enter. The skeins, knitted, crocheted, woven, or felted items can be 50% or more BFL, and the photos should feature either BFL sheep, fleece or fiber.
Please consider entering things - I have an irrational fear that none of my friends will participate!
You can download and print the entry forms off the Bluefaced Leicester Union website here: Put your cursor over the "ABOUT BLU" dropdown box, and then click on National Show Information.
