There is an exciting addition to the Manitoba Fibre Festival this coming September 2017.
The Manitoba Fibre Festival and Canadian Cooperative Wool Growers are sponsoring a wool judging course this year, dovetailing in with the Manitoba Fibre Festival. The planning is underway and it will run for two days, Sept. 14-15, 2017. This will include both Levels 1 and 2 Canadian Wool Judging Certification courses. This course will be of interest to those wanting to learn more about wool or wanting to be wool judges. It will take place at the Red River Exhibition Grounds in Winnipeg, the same location as the Festival.
There will also be the annual Wool Competition and auction, Hall of Breeds (a live display of various sheep breeds, including rare breeds) and shearing demonstrations along with all the classes, demos, juried fibre art show and sale products of the Festival.
