Descriptions

Our fourth annual Etsy Craft Party - Seattle Edition - was a big hit. We checked the weather obsessively in the days leading up to the event because everyone was predicting a 90% chance of thunderstorms. Our kind neighbors at Jarr Bar were kind enough to lend us their space to set up one of the craft tables in case of rain. The bad news: It did pour. The good news: It only lasted for about 10 minutes and then we all went on about our day. It was the best we could have hoped for!

We had lots of projects for people to take part in: Greeting card embellishment (with supplies donated by Strathmore Papers, Sakura, 3M and Artist & Craftsman Supply), String Art (with supplies donated by Darice & 3M), Loome was in the house teaching everyone how to use their tools to make pom poms, tassels, knitted cord and small woven projects, a table just for kid crafts led by Olga from Thrive Art School, iron on samples from Siser and a giant coloring wall.

We had a lot of help putting this event together. #1 A+ Super amazing help from Michaela Rose who always photographs our events. She does a wonderful job -- and somehow even manages to take over all our social media for the day as well. We are EVER SO GRATEFUL!

A huge thank you to all our other sponsors: 3M, Darice, Sakura of America, Strathmore Papers, Siser North America, Artist & Craftman Supply, Biscuit Bitch, Jarr Bar, Loome, Thrive Art School, Urban Craft Uprising, The Handmade Showroom, General Assembly, Seattle ReCreative, Unanimous Craft
