Shar, Karen and Sarah (Jackie's daughter) braved the cold yesterday to put up some outside lights in preparation for Julefest in the Danish Village next Friday and Saturday. It's our opening of the Christmas shopping season. After taking time to celebrate and savor Thanksgiving on Thursday, why not come here for fun shopping, easy parking and good food instead of braving the Black Friday hassle?
There are two great boutiques at the town halls in both Elk Horn and Kimballton. I started the Prairie Christmas Boutique in Kimballton 32 years ago. In 2000 I sold it to Cheryl Rosenbeck one of my folk artists. She has done a great job of carrying on the tradition. One of her current artists is my sister, Jan Speed. Many of you are familiar with her patterns for wool, wool felt and embroidery at Prairie Star Quilts.
At the shop (we will open early both days at 9am) we'll have a surprise sale. We'll also be doing ongoing demos of fast and easy gift ideas for you to make. All of the staff at Prairie Star Quilts make our great samples. When we are done displaying them the staff members don't always want to keep all of them. Once a year we display and sell the excess samples in our Retreat Center. Opening day for this is the first day of Julefest (Friday after Thanksgiving) at 9am.
the show and sale will continue until Christmas.
