Julie Petrella, of Swainton, is the owner and operator of Home Made in Swainton. Home Made is a small but mighty independent craft shop at 1761 Route 9 in Swainton. They offer fine yarns, fabrics, classes, and gifts. The shop opened in January 2011 and occupies a mid-19th century house, rich in history and character. It is her philosophy that the process of creating is just as important as the finished project. She wants you to enjoy beautiful materials for crafting as well as the fun, relaxation, and sense of pride that comes from making something yourself.
