Scrapbooking weekend set for April 19-21

The Stearns History Museum and Research Center (SHMRC) will turn into scrapbooking heaven for 30 hours between Friday, April 19, and Sunday, April 21.

Scrapbooking can be done anywhere (and is!).  Scrapbooking at the SHMRC offers the opportunity to think about scrapbooking in its historical context.  Every scrapbook tells a story and most tell a history story.

In addition to ample time to create scrapbooks (using your own tools as well as some provided by the Museum), the weekend will also include optional workshops on incorporating genealogical research into your scrapbooking projects, on how people in the past have done scrapbooks, and on how to use your scrapbook to craft your own, your family’s and/or your community’s story.

Each day will include one make and take.  A Creative Memories (CM) consultant will provide advice, ideas, answer questions, and offer a selection of CM supplies.  Friday night pizza, Saturday lunch, Sunday brunch, snacks and water will be provided and a refrigerator and microwave oven are available.

To register, call the Stearns History Museum at (320) 253-8424. Enrollment is limited to 16. Deadline for registration is March 31.  For more information, contact Debi at [email protected].
