Join us for our next ArtShare class on Saturday, February 25 2023 from 10 am to 3pm. There will be a break for lunch from Noon to 1pm. Kumihumo is traditional Japanese braiding. It is the name of the technique and also refers to the resulting braid. In this class we will learn the basics of Kumihimo and then turn our braids into bracelets. The class fee is $35 and covers all materials needed. Provided materials will include a foam loom, fibers, and findings to complete the bracelet. Pay online or in store!
Every year, supporters like you help make our Give to the Max Day incredibly successful. We hope that you will join us again on November 17th for Give to the Max Day and help us continue to connect our community by supporting local artists and creating spaces to experience the arts in Stevens County.
Give to the Max Day was created in 2009 to launch GiveMN, a collaborative venture led by Minnesota Community Foundation and many other organizations committed to helping make our state a better place. That initial spark touched off an outpouring of generosity — $14 million in 24 hours. Since then, Give to the Max Day has become Minnesota’s annual giving holiday, raising more than $250 million in its first 13 years. Every year, thousands of organizations and individuals generate donations and excitement for Minnesota causes that are working to improve the quality of life for all Minnesotans. Give to the Max Day has become a national model for giving days.
Your donation on Give to the Max Day also may help us receive an additional donation of $1,000. How? Every gift made on GiveMN.org will be entered into an hourly drawing for a $1,000 GiveMN Golden Ticket to be awarded to a nonprofit organization–that could be us! Every little bit counts for us nonprofits, and the bonus drawings GiveMN awards are significant funds that can help us with our programming, operations, and more. We actually won a Golden Ticket in 2020 because a person donated during the Early Giving period leading up to Give to the Max Day, so don’t feel like you have to wait to make your gift!
If you believe in the work our organization does, and are able to contribute anything towards supporting our mission, be sure to mark your calendar and make your gift on November 17 by visiting GiveMN.org and searching for our organization or clicking the button below! Thank you!
