Craftstravaganza at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds – May 12, 2012

While I’ve been slacking a bit on my blog posts, I’ve been spending some awesome quality time with my sister and her husband while they were in town. It’s been nice to be with my family and change things up a bit, but now it’s time to get back to business. I’m working on several projects as well as preparing for my first trunk show on May 21 in Andover. More about that soon.

Tomorrow the St. Paul Craftsravaganza Rogue Art and Craft Sale is being held at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Vendors will be housed in two buildings at the fairgrounds – the Fine Arts Building and the Progress Center. Admission is free and over 140 artists are participating – many, many talented Minnesotans in so many varying areas of expertise.

In addition, there is a schedule for free workshops throughout the day. Maybe there’s a craft that you’re interested in learning but haven’t quite taken the time to master.

Workshop Area #1:

ALL DAY – MN Center for Book Arts mini tunnel books & button making

Workshop Area #2:

  • 10:00-11:00 – Spinning Demonstration by MN Weaver’s Guild
  • 11:00-11:30 – “How To Sell To A Shop” by i like you
  • 11:30-12:30 – Make Food Jewelry with Tiny Hands
  • 1:00-2:00 – Weaving Demonstration by MN Weaver’s Guild
  • 2:30-3:30 – T-Shirt Necklaces with Sherri Olson
  • 3:30-4:30 – Make Food Jewelry with Tiny Hands

Happy shopping – I bet you can find some great last minute Mother’s Day gifts, or spend some money while your “other half” is at the fishing opener!
