Show A Angora Judging at Stockton

On Sunday, June 4, we started our day with Carol judging the English Angora, Casey clerks.  There are a table full of English Angora, all in gorgeous full show coats.

Matt and Aaron watch Carol commenting on the colored English Angora.

The pretty little black junior English Angora girl is getting a check from judge Carol.


Tammy loads the table with Giant Angora waiting for judge Carol to start.

Casey acquired a nice pair of Satin Angora at the convention in Del Mar last October, now the offspring of the pair are ready to be shown.


Judge Carol carefully compares the two Satin Angora juniors.


Carol has French Angora entries so the French Angora are judged by Ray.   Ray's table had some meat breeds on before Angora, the table is full of shavings and the shavings got attached to the full coated French Angora.

A broken French Angora doe is on Ray's table.

Judge Ray loves the colored senior buck.

For a complete list of the Angora winners, go to:

Thread Art

There's a display of Hapsburg lace bookmarks.
It's a special form of embroidery art.

If you put "Hapsburg bookmark" on google, you'll be surprise how many beautiful images you'll find.


With thread, there is another art form: Temari Balls.

According to Wikipedia, "Temari balls are a  folk art form originated in China and was introduced to Japan around the 7th century A.D. "Temari" means "hand ball" in Japanese. Balls made from embroidery may be used in handball games."

The display of the Temari Balls at the Morgan Hill Community and Cultural Center is very nice.

It's doubtful anyone would use these as handballs for the game, they are really pieces of art.
