Ways to Connect

The Creative Spirit Fiber Festival kicks off tomorrow night and continues all day Saturday at the Calvary Lutheran Church in Bemidji.  Fiber artists Lori Forshee-Donnay and Bonnie Lundorff stopped by the studio to tell us all about it.

For several years now,  Bemidji Community Theater(BCT) has payed, eh em, played it forward with various projects supporting local and nationwide causes including Locks of Love, an elephant sanctuary, the MN Children's Hospital,

Since 1992,  memorial marches have taken place every year across the United States, Canada, and around the world on Valentine's Day in honor of missing and murdered Indigenous women.  Native women, as well as  the LGBT community and Two Spirit individuals face violence at disproportionately high rates compared to other categories of people.

Mary Lahr Schier's book "From Apples to Zinnias: the Northern Gardener, 150 Years of Garden Wisdom"  is a treasure trove of hints, suggestions, anecdotal stories and tried and true strategies for creating successful gardens in northern climates.  Schier weaves Minnesota history through her pages, connecting current day planting and tending methodologies to their origins in days gone by.
