Etsy Craft Party: Durham, NC
Thursday, June 20, 2013 at 6:00 PM (EDT)
Spoonflower and Acorn to Oak Handmade (Raleigh area Etsy Street Team) invite you to the Spoonflower Greenhouse for the fourth annual Etsy Craft Party! Come celebrate this year’s theme, Craft for Community, with food and DIY fun! Mix and mingle with fellow crafters from our area with simple projects ranging from origami to plushie robots!
We will provide everything you need for DIYs making cut and sew plushies and fabric covered buttons and earrings! You can craft with us, take cut and sew kits with you for later, or you can donate finished projects to sell in the Spoonflower Etsy shop. All proceeds from sales will go to Heifer International, an organization that has worked since 1944 to end hunger and poverty in communities around the world. Heifer International empowers families to sustain themselves and their communities by providing livestock and traning. Not only do these donations of livestock ensure a reliable source of food for families, they also provide the potential for income through the sale of exra agricultural products such as milk, eggs, and honey.
We will also offer tours of Spoonflower’s digital printing operations at the top of every hour, starting at 7pm. Come to craft and get to know your local Etsy Street Team, Acorn to Oak Handmade, and check out the Spoonflower Greenhouse, a community crafting space right here in Durham. Please come eat, drink, and craft merrily with us for the Etsy Craft party 2013!
