Educational Booths at Rhinebeck
For many years, individual members of the CGA have provided educational displays on cashmere goats and cashmere fiber at the New York State Sheep & Wool Festival in Rhinebeck, NY. Cashmere goats are always on display as well in the Exotic Animal barn. In 2016, CGA began offering an additional educational booth within the vendor buildings at the festival, with products made from CGA's own cashmere goats for sale.
If you can get to upstate NY in October (the 19th and 20th this year), make plans to visit the Exotic Animal Barn to meet the goats and their owners and stop by the CGA booth to see all of the glorious things that can be made from this fine natural fiber and to learn a bit about raising cashmere goats and working with the fiber.
The CGA is seeking cashmere producers who are interested in participating in the booth. No need to be a CGA member! Products made from cashmere and products that raise awareness about cashmere goats are welcome. Anyone who would like to participate may fill out the form HERE or contact Elyse Perambo at firstname.lastname@example.org
