This is Vanessa, Director of Community and Education at Etsy, and I'm so excited to meet you face-to-face!
This meetup is open to the SF Team and anyone interested in Etsy. I will be there, as will other Etsy Admin — web designer Magera and engineers David and CB. We'll give you an update about the latest at Etsy as well as get feedback from you.
The meetup will be help 5 - 7 p.m. PT at the Museum of Craft and Folk Art.
We're especially interested in launching I Heart Art: San Francisco. I Heart Art, which we are currently running in Portland and Baltimore, is Etsy's collaboration bringing together local Etsy Teams and institutional partners, such as museums and art schools. The goal is to foster community and support of local art, craft, vintage and small business. Come talk to us about Etsy and the potential I Heart Art collab! (There's a smaller planning committee meeting to brainstorm too, and you know who you are and should be getting an additional invite!)
I'm also going to be attending the Craft Forward conference at California College of the Arts and the American Craft Council's Convenings. Please let me know if you'll be at these events too - I'm vanessa.etsy.com.
