Helen and SuGAH
We are featuring one of our oldest members, Helen, today. Helen has been with the NCAG for over 20 years, and she also wins the contest of being our elder statesperson award. She is a 83 years young.
A couple of months ago, Helen's companion rabbit passed away at 7 years old. Helen was very sad and wished to have another rabbit. Our lovely couple Franco and Tracy came to the rescue. They drove a 4-hour round trip to deliver a Jersey Wooly to Helen. Unfortunately Helen and this Jersey Wooly did not bond. A week later, Franco and Tracy drove another 4-hour round trip to take back the Jersey Wooly and delivered a 5-week-old Satin Angora bunny from Tracy's new litter.
It works out great! Helen is very enchanted with this new Satin Angora bunny who she named SuGAH, Sugar with a southern accent. Helen cannot be happier.
Helen is a well known fiber artist and author. She teaches fiber classes, writes for Spin-Off, published several books including "How to Spin a Rabbit". At 83 years young, Helen is so active that it's hard for us to keep up.
Good job, Helen, and thanks, Franco and Tracy.
