Every May 17th Norwegians worldwide celebrate Norway's independence with a day similar to our 4th of July - only theirs is called Syttende Mai (the 17th of May).  George "Ole" Olson stopped by the studio to talk about this special Norwegian holiday.  Ole gave us a history lesson on the complicated relationship between Norway and Sweden and told us about the events related to the day.

Jenny Wilder loves her fiber.  A couple cross country road trips inspired her to turn her energy toward connecting and showcasing fiber artists.   She’s been creating the Fiber Arts Almanac since 2010 and she’s been instrumental in organizing what are called fiber art trails in North Dakota, Nebraska, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Ohio, Iowa and Minnesota for.  This coming weekend north and west central Minnesota will be home to what is called the Pine to Prairie Fiber Arts Trail and of course Jenny Wilder will be right here
