MHV is fortunate to have associations with a variety of community groups and clubs. We have frequently mentioned the Southeast Draft Horse Association, the Steinbach and Area Garden Club, the Southeast Implement Collectors, the MHV Auxiliary and Steam Club ’71. One group that we haven’t mentioned as frequently is the MHV Crafters. If you have visited the General Store on the Village Main Street, you will have encountered these people. They are the ones who make all the beautiful crafts that are for sale in the General Store. They also staff the store on a volunteer basis, selling each others products and also a few products for MHV. Their work also adds to the richness of the experience of our MHV guests.

On November 5 this group of MHV Crafters is holding its annual Craft Sale in the Village Centre Auditorium. The entire auditorium will be full of tables of crafts for sale. This will be a fine place to start Christmas shopping. The sale begins at 10:00AM and will be open till 4:00PM. Mark it on your calendar for this Saturday.

I gather there is at least one other craft sale in Steinbach at the same time. Invite your friends from far and wide to visit "Craft Sales City" on Saturday, November 5.
