Etsy craft party


Etsy Craft Party!

Remember the fun Etsy Craft Party we hosted last year? It’s time again for Etsy’s yearly nationwide craft party. Crafters around the nation will be attending and hosting parties of their own – why not attend one here at Stitch?

You’re invited to Etsy Craft Party 2013:Craft for Community,
our global celebration of meeting and making. This year’s theme focuses
on using your creative powers to make your hometown even better.

Be a part of the excitement! June 20th from 6-9pm, we’ll be gathering at the shop to talk… Shop. Marie Kelly, from Etsy, will be showing us how to photograph your Etsy sellables in a way that flatters them most as well as answering all of your questions about Etsy. If you’ve been hesitating to open a shop, are just getting started, or even if you are a seasoned veteran of Etsy… We want you! Come by and learn everything you can or share your knowledge during a fun social evening celebrating craft and making!

Please RSVP by clicking this link. If we get 25 RSVPs we will get a package of goodies from Etsy to hand out during our party!

Don’t forget to bring your goods and some business cards – this will be a great opportunity to network and meet some other crafters!
