Awestrike yourself with a plethora of eye-catchers such as handmade jewelry, clothing, furniture, toys, home accessories, sculptural and functional works of glass, ceramics, and decorative fibers.
The show is expected to attract over 10,000 people and encourages the attendance of eager-to-innovate DIY-ers who are eager to learn innovative ways to DIY. Celebrate the American Craft Council's relocation to the Twin Cities with a day spent purchasing picturesque art or imagining how well a pair of polished gold-hoop earrings would look on your fashionable feline.
