Craft Party Roundup: What’s On in Your Area?

May 30, 2014

We like to party. But partying is always better when it’s a craft party! Craft Party is Etsy’s global celebration of making, with Etsians from all over the world using craft to come together for a day of fun.

The Australian Etsy community is getting together in lots of different places across this big country of ours. West Elm is hosting craft parties at their stores in both Melbourne and Sydney. The folks of BrisStyle are celebrating the opening of their brand new headquarters with a craft party. RAW Canberra are lighting the Canberra Telstra tower orange for us! Sydney’s Etsy Street team will be partying in Ultimo. In Melbourne the lovely Unleash Creative partner with Frankie and Swiss for a bumper craft party and in Sydney BlogSociety team with Workshop.

If you’ve ever wanted to meet the Etsy Australia team, here’s your chance! Etsy Australia Admin will be hosting a Craft Party at Finders Keepers Sydney markets on June 6 and 7. Stop by to get your picture taken in our special photobooth and say hello! We’ll have some special stickers on hand that will give you the Disney hairdo or moustache you’ve always wanted. If you’re an Etsy seller in Sydney, make sure you drop by to join in the fun.

On top of all of this we’ve launched a competition to win one of three $100 Etsy gift cards. To go in the running, simply share your pictures of craft party in the lead up and during the event using the hashtags #craftparty #craftpartyau. The three best pictures will win and be announced on the Etsy Australia Facebook.

Along with these larger events, there are 27 (and counting) craft parties happening across Australia. You can use Eventbrite to search for one close to you, or start one up in your area today!

Where will you be craft partyin’? Let us know in the comments how you celebrate making.
