Upcoming Workshops

Green Laundry, Saturday, August 15th, 11am-12:30pm: Want to clean green while saving some green? Making your own laundry supplies is not only cheaper and better for the environment, but healthier for you and your skin. Many store-bought brands are loaded with chemicals and toxins, some of which have nothing to do with the cleansing process. Besides saving sensitive skin, many DIY laundry recipes actually clean clothes better!

Candle Maker Pop-Up Bar with The Onyx Exchange, Saturday, August 29th, 11am-6pm: Join the Onyx Exchange for an afternoon of candle making at Homespun! Mark your calendars and stop in to make your very own 7oz. Lux candle or 10oz. Wine Bottle Candle. Mix your own scents (36 to choose from!) and create a one-of-a-kind candle!

Jewelry Making: Wire Wrapping Basics, Saturday, August 29th, 4-7pm: Have you ever wanted to go on a gem hunt? Well, here is your chance! Rana Salame Striedinger of Salame Jewelry Designs is opening her treasure chest of gemstones for you to peruse and select from to create your own one-of-a-kind jewelry. Students will learn several wire wrapping and jewelry assembly techniques to create two unique items – students can choose to make a pair of earrings and a necklace, two pairs of earrings, or two necklaces.

    I just moved into the Trailside Apts a few doors East of Homespun. I have visited your shop several times before we became neighbors and have sent people there when I was unable to find just the right gift they were looking for at Carsons dept store where I work.
    I think I’d like to work there part time if ever there is an opportunity. I would be a good, reliable addition to the store as I thrive in the retail environment and Art and Crafting is my passion.

      Hi Jan!

      Thanks for referring people to us! Glad we’re neighbors. We’re not currently hiring, but if you follow us on Facebook and Twitter, you’ll know as soon as we are. If you’d like to come in and submit a resume including your hours of availability, we’ll be sure to have it on file for when we’re ready to add to our team. Thanks for your interest in Homespun!
