Candy's Donation to the ARBA History Library
Before 1987, ARBA recognized two breeds of Angora: English Angora and French Angora. The NARBC logo showed two breeds of Angora until into the late 90s.
Candy had needlepointed a huge NARBC logo for the NARBC booth at the annual ARBA conventions. She carried it to and from the conventions every year until the logo changed. Recently she decided to donate it to the ARBA History Library. She was told to mail it, but no one realized how big it was. Candy decided to deliver it to the ARBA office herself, driving from Indiana to Bloomington, Illinois. The top photo shows this beautiful piece of artwork done by Candy. In the second photo, the needlepoint logo is in its gray carrying case between the table and the display case. One can see how big it is.
Candy is seen in the third photo holding our NCAG Angora Handbook. She and Betty are the only two charter members of NCAG since 1982, though Candy lives in Indiana. We appreciate her long association with our guild.
Now there are four ARBA recognized Angora: English Angora, French Angora, Giant Angora (1988) and Satin Angora (1987). This two-breed logo truly is an historical item.
