Etsy has just announced the launch of Etsy Craft Party, a global initiative to energize local communities, make crafty goodness together and throw a party in our own hoods. They want to celebrate crafting together on June 18, 2010 (which just happens to be Etsy's birthday) with as many celebrations across the globe as possible.
Etsy and the 'Craft Party' sponsors (to be announced soon) will provide every event organizer with a free downloadable Craft Party Kit containing crafty project instructions and templates, along with tips and ideas for things to do at the party. There might even be a few fun coupons and surprises — who knows?!
Get moving... Etsy and the party sponsors will send a giant box of Etsy promos, coupons and gift certificates, supplies, and surprises from our amazing sponsors to the top 50 locations with the most RSVPs using Meetup Everywhere. Etsy will announce the top 50 on June 7, so get a move on and register your interest!
To register your interest in the Melbourne Etsy Craft Party event, click here. The location of the event (not yet confirmed) will be based on where the highest concentration of rsvp's come from. We'll try to keep it central to everyone.
So if you're a crafter (experienced or new, young or used to be once, or just want to see what this craft hoopla is all about), why not join in on the fun and come along to a fun night of crafting and laughs. Who knows, you might pick up a new skill, learn a new technique or even make some new crafty friends.
Spread the word and tell your crafty (or wannabe crafty) friends about it via your blog, facebook or twitter. Let's try and get as many Melbourne (and surrounds) folk in on this.
