This Weavin’ Up North Basketry Workshop is one of the finest and oldest still running in Minnesota, but they need your help!

I think this one is about the 22nd annual workshop maybe? And if there are not more registrations, the workshop will have to be cancelled. It would be a real shame if this workshop had to close.

It’s a warm, relatively small basketry workshop that’s very laid back and everyone always has a great time. The food is absolutely wonderful, serving foods from around the world. And the accommodations are moderately priced and beautiful.

Here’s a quote from the organizers:

“We are willing to waive the $10 “late fee” for anyone who can register before the 21st of March. But we cannot wait past that point to allow teachers and the Concordia Language Village enough time to prepare.

If we do not have enough weavers by the 21st we will cancel the workshop and return all checks.”

So get that registration in NOW! Don’t miss your chance to help this great organization keep this workshop open for many more years to come.

Until next time…

~~ Live Well, Laugh Often, Love Much ~~
Happy Weaving!

  1. Hi CP. I now have your blog on my Google Reader. I especially like that slide show.

    • Thanks Lois, appreciate you leaving the comment. I like the slideshow too, it’s of many if not all of the photos I’ve used on previous posts through the years.
