Rescheduled to 4/25 – Laundry Camp with

The Laundry Evangelist, Patric Richardson

During our event, Patric Richardson will share his journey in the fashion industry and take us through Laundry Camp! It’s time to learn some new tricks for the laundry room. Find out what the Wall Street Journal, NBC Nightly News, Star Tribune, and Kare11 news have been talking about. Learn to wash the unwashable and how to take care of your clothes and textiles at home. This class will give you the confidence to wash and care for your clothes and make you fall in love with Laundry.

Patric Richardson, the owner of Mona Williams, is a longtime lover of beautiful clothes.   In college, there was only one choice, a degree in Fashion merchandising, apparel and textiles.  The time at the University of Kentucky allowed Patric to hone his skills with textiles, becoming an expert in their use and care. After college, the transition to Minnesota was easy, Patric took a job at Neiman Marcus selling beautiful clothes in an exceptional environment. Working there for 3 years, he had the opportunity to go to Nordstrom and be a manager.  While at Nordstrom, he worked with leaders in high fashion, growing the business and learning the significance of the runway. The opportunities to learn about chic at Neiman Marcus, and about runway style at Nordstrom gave life to the idea of Mona Williams. Since opening Mona Williams, Patric has received many accolades including a recent feature in the Lifestyle section of the Minneapolis Star Tribune showing his love of clothing care and expertise with laundry.


Menu: Light snacks of prepackaged varieties of cheese, meat, crackers and/or nuts and dessert along with bottled water will be available.  Refreshments provided will be easy to eat, nourishing and most importantly non messy!
