About the Instructor
Julie has raised rabbits since she was a youngster in FFA. Rabbits led her to raise Angora. Their wool led to learning to spin and joining a Guild. Then, she just jumped in and now raises Angora rabbits and Angora goats. She prides herself on being able to follow her passion from feeding the goats and rabbits, to the shearing, washing, carding, spinning, and weaving of their fiber.
