MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — People who enjoy “crafting” are heading to the St. Paul RiverCentre this weekend for the annual American Craft Council Show.

“What you won’t see is paintings,” said Pam Diamond, spokesperson for the Craft Council.

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.
