Did you enter the 2019 MAPACA Jubilee’s Spin-Off? 
Great News! you are eligible to enter the 2019 MAPACA Jubilee Cottage Fleece Show as well
Did you know that the Cottage Fleece Show places minimal value on the overall fleece weight? 

Spin-Off exhibitors now have an additional opportunity to showcase their fleeces even after they have been skirted and sorted for other competitions. This is your opportunity to earn two ribbons with one fleece as well as great feed back from two different Industry Leading Judges. Fleece Shows are a great way to enter a show while being cost effective yet get great feedback on how you are stacking up with other breeders from across the country. So, don’t delay and enter your fleeces in to the 2019 MAPACA Jubilee’s Fleece Shows.

All fleece show competitions are being supervised by Cheri Seiler, please contact her for additional information.
