Classes at Lakes Makerie

Lakes Makerie has a wonderful selection of independent patterns and the fabric to make them. We are offering a few classes at the store, mornings only, as the store opens at noon which allows space to work. We hope to see new faces and regulars as we explore what the metro area has to offer.

Lakes Makerie is located at the NE corner of 53rd and Chicago Av. S in Minneapolis. Parking is plentiful around the block.
