The biggest craft show in the area is set for this weekend.
The annual St. Michael-Albertville Women of Today craft show on Saturday will feature Thanksgiving and Christmas items, as well as an array of homemade household and personal items.
More than 200 vendors will be at the event, taking place at St. Michael-Albertville Middle School West from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
A free shuttle bus from Albertville Primary School will be available. The show is free to the public.
"It's the biggest craft show in the area," said Laurie Daniels, STMA Women of Today president. “People travel from the five-state area to be a part of the show,”
The show will include something for everyone, she said. At the show, vendors will have purses, wallets, totes, personalized items, decorative woods with sayings, kitchen towels, runners, appliance covers, wood puzzles, toys, scented candles, soaps, potpourri, lighted bottles, lighted floral arrangements, photography, jewelry, clothing for children and adults, doll clothes, fleece items, metal art, wind chimes, music CDs, birdhouses, food items like nuts, candy lefse, homemade jams, and more.
The show will also be a drop site for Caring for Kids. People can donate new toys, books and hats or mittens for children.
The STMA Women of Today has been organizing the craft show in the community for 25 years.
“This is a fundraiser for the group so we can give back the dollars raised to the community through projects and donations,” Daniels said. “I am excited to once again serve the community of St. Michael-Albertville with a great craft show, as well as reconnecting with the vendors and shoppers.”
