Kick Starter of the Week - Homespun: Modern Handmade

Hey crafters, Etsyers,artists and makers of all kinds; this week's Kick Starter, Homespun: Modern Handmade, is right up your alley.

The creators of the INDIEana Handicraft Exchange, a bi-annual indie craft fair, are looking to make a genuine brick and mortar shop for all things handmade called Homespun.

The goal of Homespun is spectacular. They plan to provide a space for artists to promote, sell and learn with a special workshop area. They'll teach everything from crafting techniques to business development skills. 

The goal?  Turning hobbyists like you and me into professionals.  Now that's a undertaking.

They're only asking $3,000 to help get started. The money raised will be used towards tables and seating for the workshop area (handmade of course!), shelving, supplies, a kitchenette and if all goes well,  other little things like a handmade sign, displays, etc. 

So what do you get for your pledge, besides the awesome knowledge that you helped out a great cause?  Well $52 gets you a free class at the new store, plus a few extra little fun things like a Homespun t-shirt.  $121 gets you and a friend invited to the grand opening party. $1,111 and you'll receive unlimited workshops for 5 years and $3,003 gets you a workspace dedicated in your name.

As usual though, you can pledge as low as $5.  So if you're an artist or art lover who believes in promoting the handmade, then skip that Latte and give it to Homespun.  I'm sure you'll be glad you did.
