Instead of worrying about whether we should merge the Alpaca Owners and Breeders Association and Alpaca Registry, Inc, we should be pushing to have teams working with these designers. Then we wouldn't need to worry about financial challenges because we will be building a viable industry that will need these two entities. We need to have visionaries that see our industry grow into more markets. How business has worked for the first twenty years of this industry is not going to sustain it. We need to quickly transition to a true textile provider.
I say to you alpaca breeders who may know some of those fashion designers, start asking them what they need from us so we can start making it! These are opportunities for us and for those of you that have that entrepreneurial eye. Let's get cracking! It is time to set this industry on the road to success. And I define that success not just by how many Color Championships and Blue Ribbons I have won in a show ring but by us getting our fiber out of our barns and filling up mills and manufacturers with our homegrown, lush and wonderful alpaca fiber!!!!
