,Amanda Sadowski is a licensed judge for the Pygora Breeders Association (PBA) and chair of the Fiber Committee for the PBA. She has been instrumental in advancing the breed through her efforts on fiber quality, production, and management which has helped her obtain the first Permanent Grand Champion Pygora Buck and Doe for fleece in the history of the breed.
Amanda has been a fiber artist for the majority of her life which led to her raising Angora rabbits and Pygora goats with her family on their farm in Northwest, Indiana. Her experience in raising, processing by hand, blending, spinning, and creating products has given her a unique perspective on what is desirable in a fleece, what preparation is best for specific types of yarn, and their intended end-use. Her experiences with teaching, mentoring, and judging gives her the greatest joy which is not only to impart knowledge, but to kindle enthusiasm in fiber animals, fiber production, and fiber arts.
