A holiday workshop
Saturday, November 17, from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

Since 1985 The Aliveness Project has been a community resource in Minnesota. Every year their Holiday Basket Program delivers hundreds of gift baskets to individuals and families affected by HIV/AIDS. These baskets include stockings, made by members of the fibre arts community, and filled with little treasures. We hope you will join us this season and make a stocking or two. We will be here in TRP’s costume shop from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm. Come at your convenience and stay as long as you like (if you can, send an email to Toni at to let us know when you might be by). Upon arrival, please ring both costume and green room doorbells at the BACK DOOR. Refreshments will be served!
