#CraftParty Recap

I hope you saw my plug for the #CraftParty on my What I’m Lovin’ in May post last week! I wanted to give you an update of how it went!


Two sweet gals and I emptied out our craft closets, made many emergency runs to all the craft stores in town stocking up on supplies and obnoxiously posted on social media about the event – and, alas, it all came together and was a perfect evening!

Search the global Etsy hashtag #CraftParty and our local tag #GatherAndCraft on Instagram for photos from the event! {Photo credit: @makemeovereb on Instagram}
The night’s theme was “Recapture: Bring new meaning to your photographs” which our participants took to heart with embroidery, stickers, stamps and other mediums!
I even got a little time to color some stamped postcards! {Photo credit: @MASWDesigns on Instagram}

Keep up with Columbia’s Etsy Market Team on Facebook to stay in the loop for future craft parties and where to find your favorite local Etsy shops popping up around town!

Coming in July, one of our Craft Party hostesses – Shanika of Life is Pichey – will be hosting crafting workshops! Keep up with her page – Gather and Craft on Facebook – for updates on upcoming classes!

My name is Jordan. I'm a full-time working mom whose coffee cup is always half full (and probably still in the microwave). I've got a weak spot for rescuing old dogs, pretending pizza is a vegetable, negotiating dessert with every meal, propagating more plants than any home needs, dreaming of sewing projects while my husband is talking to me, and loving my tribe too deep.
