Santa’s Sheep and Sewing Saturday, June 10 at Santa Claus Museum & Village


On Saturday, June 10 from 10 a.m. to noon Central time, the Santa Claus Museum & Village will hold a free and fun event called Santa’s Sheep & Sewing Saturday. The day’s activities include seeing live sheep, learning to knit & crochet, enjoying traditional spinning and quilting, and making a yarn doll to take home. All supplies are provided. 

Participants in the event include 3 Kings Farm, Mrs. Pat Koch, Jilly’s Art, the Day family, Mary King, and John and Doris Pfaff. Director Kathleen Crews remarked, “There are a lot of historical life skills that our talented artisans can teach our guests. These traditional skills are part of the cultural history we seek to preserve at the Santa Claus Museum & Village!” 

There is no admission charge for guests to visit the museum, browse the gift shop, write letters to Santa in the historic Post Office, visit the 1880 Santa Claus Church, or view the 12-foot Santa Claus Mural and the 22 foot Santa Claus Statue. The Santa Claus Museum & Village is a not-for-profit organization which seeks to preserve the natural and cultural history of the town of Santa Claus and perpetuate the tradition of answering thousands of children’s letters to Santa.
