There is something so special about giving a homemade gift to someone. Homemade gifts don’t need to be expensive or difficult to show someone how much you care. The heart put into these gifts is felt by anyone who receives them. Maker culture is huge with kids right now, so it shouldn’t be difficult getting your kids interested in a visit to one of our maker spaces. A trip to an Idea Exchange maker space can be both an educational experience and a chance for the whole family to get some of their holiday making done.
Clemens Mill and the Old Post Office both have equipment to use such as Cricut cutters, a laser cutter, and lots of open space to create. With this sort of equipment at your disposal, your DIY homemade gifts may end up looking professionally made. It’ll be our little secret!
