This weekend : Craftstravaganza

Whatcha doing this weekend, May 11? You’re coming to see me at Craftstravaganza?

That’s what I thought!

The eighth annual event runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and this year moves to the Eco Experience Building on the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. It will feature 90 artist booths, including redshoes26.

From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, May 11, you can browse a variety of cool crafts. It’s all work done by artists and designers, so you can meet the real creative forces behind the work being sold. Free workshops are scheduled throughout the day, and the first 100 shoppers will receive free swag bags with samples of vendors’ work and other goodies.

This year’s activities include opportunities to:

  • Make little books and buttons with the Minnesota Center for Book Arts
  • Crochet, felt, and learn traditional Japanese braiding with the Textile Center
  • Learn about selling your art to a shop with the owners of I Like You
  • and more!

Craftstravaganza is free to attend, and there’s plenty of free parking around the Fairgrounds as well. I’ll see you there!
