2019 Show & Sale

Notice of Cancellation

2019 MSA Show & Sale

September 14, 2019

Red River Exhibition, Winnipeg, Mb.

Due to the lack of entries submitted to the 2019 MSA Show & Sale that was to be held on September 14th in conjunction with the Manitoba Fiber Festival, we have had to unfortunately cancel our event.

The MSA Show & Sale Committee had been preparing for this event for some time now. It saddens us to a great extent to have to cancel it because of lack of entries as this venue was a great opportunity to collaborate with the Manitoba Fiber Festival. MSA will be organizing the 2020 MSA Show & Sale as a stand-alone event as it has been in the past.

MSA hopes to see you all next year…at the 2020 MSA Show & Sale.

Yours sincerely,

MSA Show & Sale Committee

MSA Board & Staff
