This meet up is open to all Chicago-area Etsians, and anyone and everyone interested in Etsy.

Also, please join us at the Apple Store, North Michigan Avenue on January 28 from 2 to 3:30 p.m. for the “Etsy, Local Artists, and Technology” talk. Join representatives from Etsy as they showcase local Etsy shop owners Ethically Engineered, Le Papier Studio, Mojo Spa Style, and Secret Safe Books. Learn how each business uses technology in their work and how they’ve grown their online presence. Explore the creative process with the artists and hear about their struggles and achievements. Then stay for a Q&A session following the discussion.

We hope you can make one of these two great events in Chicago!
