Jun 4, 2013

Count down to Craft Party begins, RSVP here! We’ve loved hearing plans for parties all over the world and can’t wait to share photos and stories. This year’s theme is Craft for Community and for the second year in a row we’ve  teamed up with our neighbors at the Brooklyn Bridge Park. This year’s festivities will take place in the Tobacco Warehouse, just down the street from the Brooklyn Etsy Labs.

Love to embroider? We hope you can make it and use your skills to create embroidered and sewn hand puppets. Projects will be donated to a variety of organizations who work with children including: Baby Buggy, Children’s Aid Society, God’s Love We Deliver and Room to Grow. Etsy staff and members of the EtsyNY Team will be available to help sew puppets.

The Tobacco Warehouse is situated in the park between the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges — perfect for photos in our DIY photo booth. We’ll have a raffle for new sellers and members, and you’ll have the chance to sample food truck treats from Brooklyn’s best, including Coolhaus and Kimchi Taco.

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER . Sweepstakes is open to legal residents of the 50 United States or the District of Columbia, age 18 or older. Entries must be received between 05:00 PM EST on 06/20/13 and 08:00:00 PM EST on 06/20/13.  Four drawing from entries received. Go here for Official Rules. Sponsor: Etsy, Inc.
