Homespun...For an Imaginative Life
Homespun, our school store, is located on the ground floor of the Waldorf School of Lexington at 739 Massachusetts Avenue. Homespun's mission is to support the Waldorf curriculum and enrich students' home life with high quality art and craft supplies, toys, books, games, and gifts. Our thoughtfully chosen selection of products feature natural materials and are designed to stimulate creativity and imaginative free play. We carry a wide selection of gifts, cards, and unique hand-crafted items for children and adults, many made right here in New England.

What is a Knit-along (KAL) and why is Homespun running one?
A knit-along is a thread of posts and comments, often with images, from a group of people who are all tackling the same project. You can join whenever you like, post as little or as much as you prefer and read how others are doing. At Homespun, our aim is to build a friendly community that includes knitters of all abilities, working through a beautiful design together, learning from each other and, of course, sharing a love of great yarn. So whether you join us virtually or in person, you are a part of our circle!
Create a Floral Display for your Nature Table
Thursday, March 21, 9:00 -11:00 a.m.
Welcome Lady Spring at a special workshop with longtime friend of Homespun and floral designer extraordinaire, Nancy Cyr. She will lead us in a quick foraging walk in the Great Meadow to collect seasonal material and then we will return to Homespun to add a few purchased blooms. You will go home with a sweet display, perfectly-sized for your nature table. Pre-registration is requested, along with a $10 materials fee.
