In-Store Events at Ingebretsen's
Events are held at our East Lake Street store, unless otherwise noted.


We are so happy to celebrate Latvia's centennial year with our local Latvian community!
The strong cultural and economic ties between Scandinavia and Latvia (which lies just across the Baltic Sea from Sweden)
have resulted in many fine hand-crafted products that we love to carry.

Latvian Mitten Exhibit
March 10 - 20

One of those shared cultural traditions is knitting, and specifically the knitting of intricately patterned mittens.
We will be hosting a Latvian Mitten Exhibit, on display in our classroom at our main store. See dozens of these beautiful mittens, each one truly a work of art.
More mittens, knit by members of our local community, will join the fun, and some will be available for sale.
We're hosting two Saturday events as part of this exciting partnership, and a Latvian knitting class!
Join us for coffee, cookies and our celebration of Latvia...
