Hey there, Crafty Peeps!
It’s TWO WEEKS until CRAFT PARTY – have you RSVP’d yet?
You didn’t even KNOW about CRAFT PARTY? Well, you’re invited, and trust me, you want to be there!
WHAT? Craft Party is Etsy’s annual worldwide shindig in celebration of all things crafty and creative. This year, Craft Party in our neck of the woods is going to be an awesome SF Etsy event and also the kick-off for I Heart Art: San Francisco! We’ll have craft workshops with Go-Go Craft! Refreshments! BYOK or C (that’s Bring Your Own Knitting or Crochet) for a stitch & bitch circle! And MORE!
WHEN? June 10th in the evening (5 or 6 pm to 9 or 10 pm, TBD)
WHERE? Well, we’ve been holding off on making a huge deal about it because we’ve been wanting to finalize the venue before going to y’all with The Big Announcement. We are now this close to settling things (making our last decision between two very good venues and lining up details like the exact time before we finalize) but rest assured that for either venue, it will be a good spot in SOMA close to BART in San Francisco, with lots of room to get down with our crafty selves! We will let you know where for sure as soon as we’ve decided.
But wherever, it will be great. We would LOVE to see you there!
We would also LOVE to line up volunteers to be sure this event is every bit as awesome as it could be.
We’re looking for folks to help with:
Set up (an hour or so before the party, so 4 or 5 pm start)
Bake sale to support Kelly Malone of Workshop SF – this local crafting legend is battling cancer, and we’ll be doing some fundraising to help with her medical costs. We need folks for doing the actual baking to donate, someone to organize the donations/volunteers, and staff for the bake sale table
Refreshments – we have some budget for this and would also be interested in having people solicit donated refreshments. We’ll share details with the volunteers!
Decorating – we have some awesome ideas (ruffled paper streamers tutorial, anyone?) and welcome others!
Welcome -- we need door greeters for hour shifts, or half hour if there’s enough interest
Crowd control -- helping with movement btw craft stations
Craft station assistants, including stitch & bitch circle facilitator
Clean up (9 or 10 pm start until done, probably an hour)
It’s gonna be a great party, but we can’t do it without YOU!
Don’t forget to RSVP.
