Program: Stash Reallocation and Potlok
Cost: Free!
As we did last year, we’re going to do the Stash Reallocation Sale in two parts - at both the daytime and evening meetings. To give everyone plenty of time to shop, we’re starting early. The daytime meeting will start at 9:30 AM and the evening meeting will start at 6:30 PM. In conjunction with the sale, we will have a pot-luck at both meetings. You can expect brunch food at the daytime meeting, and supper at the evening meeting. You may bring items to the May stitch-ins and to both June meetings. If you like to shop for bargains, this is one time you may want to attend both meetings. There’s likely to be very different items for sale at each meeting! No reservations are required, but bring an appropriate dish to share.

Program: Saami bracelet class in Lanesboro, Minnesota
Cost: Varies
St. Paul Needleworkers (SPN) is offering a Saami bracelet class in Lanesboro, Minnesota, on Friday, July 28, on a space-available basis to members and non-members. Jeweler Liz Bucheit has taught this northern Scandinavian traditional craft of stitching pewter purl to reindeer hide fastened with a reindeer-bone button many times in the Twin Citites. This trip offers a chance to see her shop in historic Lanesboro, take the class at a price other venues often charge for just the kit, and visit the lovely southeastern Minnesota town. The class and kit cost $95, which includes a light lunch. Non-members pay an additional $40 for the bus ride. Lanesboro is worth a day-trip just for sightseeing and shopping. For those who would enjoy the bus ride to spend the day in town without taking the class, the charge will be $10 members and $50 for non-members.
