Remer Arts & Crafts Club was started in 1967 by a group of eleven people who wished to find a way to sell their crafts. They each paid a membership fee to cover expenses and then burned the midnight oil to build up an inventory to stock the shop. Yearly membership has ranged between the original eleven to as many as 45 crafters. The Shop is run as a co-op with officers, and all members have a say in how it operates. The shop has occupied three locations in Remer, and is currently located in the former Remer Drug on Main Street (Highway 200). The slogan for the store is “Browsers are welcome and buyers adored”
Members pay membership dues and a consignment fee. They also work a certain number of days during the season depending on number of crafters. The Shop is open from the 1st of May to mid-December. In May, October, November and December, the Shop is open Thursday – Saturday. June through September it is open Monday through Saturday. Hours are 10 A.M. – 5 P.M.
Our handmade crafts are many and varied and include knitting, crocheting, rugs, quilts, woodworking, jams and jellies, canned goods, jewelry, recycled furniture, doll clothes, clothing, many sewn items, greeting cards, bird houses, artwork, children’s, seasonal and much, much, more. It is well worth the time and travel to come see what we have to offer.
The Shop sponsors at least one craft show each year. This year our craft show was held at the Northland Remer School on Saturday, August 8 in conjunction with the Remer Harvest Festival. The Club is always looking for new crafters both for the Shop and for the craft show. Anyone interested in either can call Teresa at 218-566-3661 or Esther at 218-326-4027 for more information.
