Besides the conferences I mentioned in the last post, I also will be in Minneapolis next month participating in FinnFest 2014. Last year, I went with the kids to attend the Finnfest in Northern Michigan. Every year the location changes, which is fabulous when you can have a new city to explore!

On Friday, August 8, I lecture on Sámi Knitting at 3p at Minneapolis' Hyatt hotel, where the conference is centered. The following day, I teach Skolt Sámi motifs at Ingebretsen's, also in Minneapolis. Ingebretsen's is a wonderful Pan-Scandinavian store with a little bit of everything in it. If you have never been there, come by for my class from 1-4, or anytime to view their marvelous wares.
