2015 Etsy Craft Party

Hello, party people!

Each year, the ETSY.com Community celebrates creativity together at Etsy’s annual Craft Party. The Etsy community will be celebrating together in towns and cities across the globe on June 5th and 6th, and you’re all invited! The 2015 party theme is:

 “Kaleidoscope: Paper Taking Shape”

This summer, indulge your creative side and join the worldwide Etsy craft party happening on Saturday, June 6th. At this free event, you can meet other local creative folks, de-stash your supplies, and take home new craft making treasures. We will offer up an opportunity to laugh with friends, snap colorful crafting pics, eat some cookies, and celebrate two of the best things in our handmade lives:  craft and community.
