August 24: Etsy Craft Party

Yay! I'm so excited to share with you photos from our Etsy Craft Party! This year it was held at the Next FabStudios in West Philly. For those of you who don't know, this place is so awesome and many local business use their equipment to create products throughout the city. On my first visit there I saw some of the new hardware for the newly re-opened Le Bec Fin.... and I know several local designers who rely on their equipment to produce their store products.

Our hostess from NextFab Studios explaining the function of the studio.
Samples of the cool things you can make...stickers, rubber stamps...
We received an Etsy Craft Party box from Micheal's which included wonderful supplies to create a wooden postcard, but they turned more into collages...and of course I forgot to get pictures:( Everyone also brought in unwanted craft supplies for our supply swap...from fabric remnants to shadow boxes to paint to beads almost everything made it into that pile, and no one left empty handed!

Crafting takes focus...

Everyone had such a great time making, chatting and swapping craft supplies, that we've decided to do it again...soon! Stay tuned to the Philly Etsy Meetup for more information!
