Some Minnesotans are finding creative ways to pass the time

The COVID-19 pandemic has meant many of us have a lot more free time on our hands, and some Minnesotans are making the most of it.

We asked audience members to leave us voicemails, telling us what hobbies they’ve picked up under the stay-at-home order. Some have picked up old instruments, one of you have been knitting, a lot of you have been quilting, one started a business making West African waist beads, and someone even taught their cat how to fetch!
