Thursday OpenWorkshop 10:30 - ?? (until the last one leaves!)

Open Workshop every Thursday! Bring a project to work on, catch up with friends, bring a project you need help with, and/or bring one of your completed projects to share. You are welcome to bring a lunch or a snack. We usually order from our favorite downtown pizza shop across the street for lunch or one of the local sandwich shops. I have coffee, tea, cold drinks, and cold water in the Shop.  

REQUIRED:  Facial Masks optional. We want all of our customers to be comfortable and stay safe. There is plenty of room in our Workshop to social distance and we love to have new people join us for a fun day at the Shop. Call the Store with any questions:  507-413-0130

NOTE** Cancellations are usually posted on our Facebook page. If you have to drive from out of the Owatonna area, please call the store to
confirm the Open Workshop for the Thursday you plan to attend.
