Meetups Everywhere

Crafty goodness.

Please come!
forward to your friends...

I met with The Thought Lot’s board this afternoon and they agreed to host our local event for Etsy Craft Party 2012. We're so excited to host at The Thought Lot! It's a beautifully emerging space ran by creative locals working hard to promote the arts in our area.  Come and craft and build our local creative community.

Shippensburg's Etsy Craft Party 2012
Friday, 24 August, 2012.
5-8 pm
37 E Garfield St., Shippensburg, PA 17257.

Please spread the word to friends, neighbors, and coworkers, and RSVP via here:
25 RSVPs by August 16 = box of supplies from Michael’s
Serendipity:  Etsy* chose Friday, August 24th for the worldwide Craft Party 2012: the night before Shippensburg Corn Festival, with the theme "Wish You Were Here."  We’re working on a great line up of projects to celebrate creativity and our hometown.
Sponsored by the wonder collective, a new children's art and education cooperative in south central Pennsylvania that I've started with two lovely creative friends. 
Please do peek at our plans for both this and our new programs at  We're starting our second week of Springfield Camp, a summer day camp for ages 5-12, tomorrow, and are working on plans for a season of Firefly Creative Teams and crafty workshops for adults this fall, most to be held at The Thought Lots
*[a note on if you're unfamiliar:  Etsy is the online world's foremost craft, vintage, and supplies marketplace.  I've been an Etsy seller for 6 years (; the shop is on vacation mode but you can look at my sold items there if curious) and have watched it grow into not only a very successful way for independent artists to sell and promote their work, but into a beautiful community for those artists and all lovers of handmade.  When I saw that Etsy's Craft Party was coming up soon, I had to get involved!

Hope to meet you there!
