All items must be completed during the 12 months prior to the show. All entries must consist of at least 50% alpaca fiber. 

Anyone with Fiber Arts interest is encouraged to enter and you do not need to be an AOA or TXOLAN member to enter these competitions.  The entry fees per entry are $20.00 for non-TXOLAN members and $15.00 for TXOLAN members .

The deadline for receipt of MAIL-IN entries is January 29, 2018.

ENTRIES CAN BE be delivered to the fleece room in person at the show by THURSDAY, February 8, 2018 by 6 pm

Entries will be judged by Andrea Nissen and will be on display at the show on February 10-11, 2017.  If mailing in, please send entries to:

There are two ways to enter the Fiber Arts Competition.  

1 - If you are an exhibitor in the Halter Show or any Fleece related competition (Spin-Off, Cottage Fleece or Full Fleece), you will find a separate category for registration for the Fiber Arts Competitions through the online registration system.  This will also properly add charges to your cart for check-out.  

For online registration, after you've registered your entries, click on the link for Fleece Tags and these tags (for inclusion with your entries) will be automatically generated in the online registration system and can be printed once you register.

2 - If you are not using the exhibitor registration system, please go to otherwise, click the paper registration form and for the paper Hand-Spun Skein Entry Tag
