Vancouver Etsy Craft Party - Bringing the online craft community offline again.
Grab your party hat for the 3rd Annual Etsy Craft Party on Friday, September 7th, 2012 from 6pm to 10pm at BLIM, a craft facility in the heart of Vancouver's historic Chinatown. The Etsy Craft Party is an annual celebration of creativity and community held all across the globe from Vancouver to as far as Barcelona. Etsy.com is a widely popular handmade and vintage online marketplace with over 17 million members worldwide and over 390 Etisians in Vancouver alone. The Etsy Craft Party will bring the online community offline again and ultimately back to its roots of independent arts and craft making.
This year, the global theme of the Etsy Craft Party is "Wish You Were Here," reflecting local Vancouver art, scenery, and flavors. Activities will include letterpress printing with artist Sam Bradd, button-making, collaborative canvas painting with Raw Canvas, glass jar decorating, journal binding, postcard making and more.
"We're excited to bring the Vancouver Etsy community together to celebrate our love of crafting and everything handmade," says Linda Liskova, an indie earring maker and Etsy Craft Party event planner from HYPE events, "It'll be an evening filled with craft, creativity, fun and even more fun."
In addition to the craft activities, attendees will also receive special perks like a discounted limo ride from UBER, ethicalDollars from ethicalDeal group buying site, and free cover to Fortune Sound Club next door. Like Etsy, sponsors UBER and ethicalDeal are also online technology companies that help consumers conveniently find offline businesses and services.
Vancouver's Etsy Craft Party will be hosted at BLIM located at 115 East Pender St. on Friday, Septempber 7th, 2012 from 6pm to 10pm. Attendees must register online prior to the event at www.vanetsycraftparty.eventbrite.ca. Keep up with the latest party planning updates on Twitter @VanEtsyParty and the hashtag #craftparty.
