Once again, the ever-popular Craftstravaganza will be taking over the Progress Center of the Minnesota Fairgrounds. Here, guests will find an eclectic collection of work from over 90 artists, including gig posters from DIY screenprint groups, giraffe plushies and onsies for babies, natural beauty products, jewelry shaped like miniature waffles (complete with butter and syrup), log-shaped pillows, and adorable knitted goods. Folks looking for gifts for Mother's Day, a baby shower, birthday, or wedding won't be disappointed by the selection offered. Meanwhile, those interested in learning about techniques or getting creative themselves will be able to watch demonstrations and partake in workshops such as weaving and spinning demos from the Minnesota Weavers Guild, food-shaped jewelry making with Tiny Hands, and a talk offering tips on how to sell your goods to boutiques around town.
