More than 250 craft artisans have their work on display.

“You’re looking at beautiful hand blown glass pieces that can be used every day or for decorative purposes — stunning jackets and scarves and hats,” said Diamond.

Other items on display and for sale include jewelry, furniture and green craft.

The American Craft Council last year moved its headquarters from New York City to the Twin Cities.

Saturday hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Admission is $12 per person or $20 for a two-day pass.

    You are leaving out a group of very talented people…..the Artists that paint canvas, glass, watercolor etc. Are the other artisans so insecure that this goup needs to be excluded.

    Get a job Larry. Demand for your business revolves around your product. This aint cutting it. Too many liberal artists out there. Make something usefull.
