Yesterday, Pam and I attended our second craft show as a vendor, but this time it was sponsored by Maple Grove Women of Today in Maple Grove Minnesota. It was nice to be surrounded by so many booths that actually had product that was "Handmade". The accommodations were outstanding and we met so many wonderful crafters. Before I go any further, I want to thank Lise Spence-Parsons of Lottie's Trinkets http://www.lottiestrinkets.com/ for introducing us to this show.
Angie Frassel  and son Craft Show Coordinator
Angie Frassel was the craft show coordinator and is a volunteer for this wonderful non-profit event. There will be another craft show held the second week of October. Check our their website at http://www.maplegrovewt.org/, or you can reach Angie at her email kfraz37@hotmail.com

The Maple Grove Women of Today is a dynamic and diverse women's organization interested in the betterment of our community. We are not politically or religiously affiliated. We are women from various backgrounds, communities, and life experiences. We are working women, homemakers, mothers, grandmothers, married and single women. We are women who want to make our communities a better place for all to live.
We volunteer our time, raise funds for charities, and provide informational seminars that are open to the public.  Our members choose the projects they want to participate in, given their interest and time availability. Members can be as involved as they want to be. Most group events take place in the evenings or on weekends. We are also interested in bettering ourselves and having fun. We have speakers attend our meetings, challenge ourselves to improve our communication skills, gather to develop new talents and plan social events. The wide range of opportunities that Women of Today offers is one of the elements that make it unique. There is something for every woman and new ideas are always welcome.
