Announcing New Keynote Speaker for the 2017 National Fleece Conference

Due to an unforeseen schedule conflict, Jane Hicks-Forrest is unable to speak at this year's Fleece Conference.

We are very pleased to announce that Celeste Malvar-Stewart has graciously agreed to share with attendees her experiences as a designer in the fashion industry and her love of working with alpaca.

Celeste Malvar-Stewart is most recognized by her ethereal high-end gowns and dresses that she creates by hand-felting alpaca fibres and wool from Ohio farms atop silk fabric, often incorporating natural dyes. She earned her Bachelor of Applied Arts Degree in Fashion while abroad in London, and holds a Master of Science in Textiles.

Her current work explores incorporating hand-felted natural fibre in Interiorwear to promote sustainability in public spaces, in keeping with her mission to create sustainable and ethical clothing.


Please take a moment or two and review all that is offered in Breakout Sessions and Workshops!
