Where: Carondelet Center, 1890 Randolph Ave, St. Paul 55015

For the last year, women from around the Twin Cities have gathered in small groups to hand-craft the lovely jewelry that Grandmother Circles will offer for sale at the Sisters of Saint Joseph Carondelet Center’s annual Craft Fair on Wednesday, November 14th.

It’s a beautiful way to support grandmothers in Kenya struggling to raise orphaned children — and a great way to get a head start on your holiday shopping.


Jewelry Sale: May 2, 2018

When: Wednesday, May 2, 2018: 7:30 am to 2:30 pm

Where: Minneapolis Government Center, Public Service Level

For months, women on probation in Hennepin County have been doing a unique brand of community service. They make jewelry to donate for sale — with all proceeds going to benefit Grandmothers Circles in Kenya.

It’s a win for women in both communities — and for anyone who stops by to purchase the absolutely gorgeous jewelry they’ve made.

More Pop-Up Craft Fairs Planned!

There are plans, and hopefully energy, to have monthly Pop-Ups at different locations around the Cities. We’re planning to feature St. Patty’s Day in March, Earth Day in April and whatever strikes our fancy for the rest of the year.

If you’d to help us to host an event in your neighborhood, please check out a location and let Karleen know ( if they’d be willing to let us set up for 3 or 4 hour sale. It would be a great way to help support Grandmother Circles.

Spring 2016 Jewelry Sale Report

$1,290 Raised!

Thanks to everyone who came and purchased handcrafted jewelry made by Our Hennepin Circle! The support and enthusiasm for our mission was incredible.

By working to connect marginalized women in Hennepin County with marginalized women in Kenya, we help advance social, economic, and educational justice for women in both communities.

Funds raised will be used to replenish a small emergency fund and to provide scholarships for girls to attend secondary school in Kenya.
