Here at Etsy, we’re proud to report that our vibrant and ever-growing community of sellers spans the whole of the United Kingdom – from Brighton and Dorset in the south to Leeds and Manchester in the north – and beyond…

We had a fantastic time meeting makers in Scotland last November – check out what we got up to here. Now it’s time to head back up north, to catch up with the creative bunch of Etsy designer-makers and vintage sellers in northern England! The Etsy Community Programmes team (that’s us!) is super excited to announce a Maker Meet Up event in Manchester on Saturday 28th February 2015.

We will be holding free maker events to introduce Etsy as an accessible and supportive route to market for designer-makers in the north of England. Our wonderful Etsy ‘Team’ (self motivated community groups of Etsy sellers) from Manchester will come along too, to meet newbies who might be interested in joining their local network.

Event details

The meeting will feature three events:
1pm – Start on Etsy: Thinking about opening an Etsy shop? Get inspired and learn the keys to success with Etsy admin and local sellers.

2:30pm – Cake and chat: join Etsy admin and local seller groups for cake and chatting! Meet other Etsy sellers in the area and find out about events and opportunities for the coming year.

3:00pm – Seller Meet Up: existing sellers on Etsy are invited to stay for an hour of Q and A, discussing 2015 plans and how to optimise your existing Etsy shop.

Please RSVP for the event you’d like to attend:
