The Party

Lisa and I had a great meeting yesterday about The Party, and we could use a few more ideas for gifts that guests can take away in little boxes we have for them. We have decided to do a bead swap, so bring any beads you don't think you'll use! We've got some crafts for people to make and take from Etsy's download-of-suggestions that became available when they threw their birthday craft party--matchboxes, envelopes, paint a teacup. There are some patterns/ideas in there too. Any other ideas? Does anyone want to give away a pattern?

Remember, if you're coming, to bring business cards! Lots of them. I'm also making a postcard with all our shop names on it.

Further ideas are *very* welcome. Thanks!


  1. I am very much interested in being part/contributor of the Elm City Etsy Team but I was unable to attend the party (school night for my 2 kids). Is there any other way to pass on my information and become a member?

  2. Yes, of course! Email the team address. You can click on the contact link here: (scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page). We'll be crafting every Thursday night, by the way, at 71 Orange St!
