This holiday season we're thrilled to be offering a collection of festive classes featuring a range of projects. From paper stars for your home to sparkly dresses* for your little ones, from wool advent calendars to the perfect cooking, crafting, and gifting apron- we're doing it all! Below you can explore class descriptions and their accompanying supply lists.
Classes will be taught by Julie Letowski ( @homesweethomestead on the Making app / Instagram )! To sign up, create an account on either the Making app's website or download the Making app (the latter would be our suggestion). Full class descriptions and further information available on the class listings within the Making App.
