In-Store Events

Our 2018 In-Store Events schedule is listed below.

Some of our In-Store Events are free of charge. However, most (e.g. our Workshops) take place in our basement classroom where seating is limited. For these, pre-registration with a non-refundable reservation fee is required (good for up to two immediate family members) on a first-come, first-served basis. Except where noted below, Workshop attendees will be given a $5 credit toward any purchase made the evening of the Workshop.

All Workshops begin promptly at 7:00 p.m. and last 1 - 2 hours, although we're happy to stay until all questions have been addressed. We ask Workshop attendees to arrive 15 minutes early so we can get everyone checked-in and start each Workshop on time. CEU documentation is available on request. Call today to register! 763-241-HOME (4663)

Please carefully note below which of these listed events require pre-registration. Please DO NOT just show up for events which require pre-registration as it is likely there will not be room for you to attend.

Sorry - child care is not provided at any of our In-Store Events, although nursing infants are fine.
