We have so enjoyed watching the Craftsy community grow to over 350,000 members that we’d like to throw a party, and we’d love for you to come!

Mark your calendars on January 26, 2012 for the Worldwide Craftsy Meetup Party.

We’ve partnered up with meetup.com to help host Craftsy parties worldwide.

What is a Craftsy Meetup Party?

A great opportunity for crafters just like you to get together and talk about your projects, meet other people, and share ideas and inspiration.

Here are some ideas for things that you might want
to do at your Craftsy party:

  • Try a stash exchange.
  • Bring a recently finished project & show off
    what you’ve been working on.
  • Rent a movie to watch while crafting together
    (we recommend “Handmade Nation”).
  • Host a yarn tasting.
  • Work on a charity project together.
  • Have a kids’ crafting table.
  • Share techniques, do crafty demonstrations,
    or set up a make & take.

How you can get involved?

We’ve created a Craftsy Meetups Everywhere page at www.meetup.com/Craftsy where you can join a Craftsy community in your area.

STEP 1:  Find the Craftsy Party community in your area. Click on the name of your city, and hit RSVP to join.

STEP 2: Become a Craftsy party organizer and set a location for your Craftsy party. Some suggestions are: your local coffee shop, a public library, a restaurant, or another public meeting space.

For those of you who live in the Denver / Boulder metro area, we will be having one here and we’d love to meet you! We’ll have lots of activities, prizes, goody bags, and some great food! Details will be coming soon.

For everyone else, join your local community and set a location for your party. We’ll be sending out a fun goodie box full of party favors, supplies, and other crafty goodies to the 10 Craftsy party locations with most RSVPs by January 5, 2012.

    I’m very interested in taking part of the Craft day in London, ON, Canada – is anyone heading it up?

    Hello- just joined! Looking forward to see what happens here! My husband and I are currently openin a craft studio, you may look at our website, however it is still underconstruction of adding more information. We will be featuring glass mediums of all kinds. We have a lobby for visitors to relax and watch instructional videos if desired. Or if grandma wants to be part, while daughter is “crafting” granny can come knit if so desired. Look forward to your website and being part of it!!
    Truly

    I know of no one in Bolivia, SA and my bud get doesn’t allow travel to another country. If there are other craftsy members in Bolivia, I would be pleased to host a meet up in either Cochabama or La Paz. Please contact me prior to January 15 via dianewimberley@hotmail.com with bolivian craftsy meet up in the subject line.

    Hi ! My name is Anna. I live in Abbotsford, BC . Canada. Just joined Craftsy. Does anybody organise a Craftsy meeting in this area in the near future ? if yes, please let me know. Thank you. I do all kind of crafts including ” Tatting with shuttle and needle” .

    1. Mira Pajak says:

      Hi, Anna! I am new to Craftsy as well and obviously new to the craft itself, I don’t even know what Tatting is, LOL. I live in Surrey BC and would like to visit if a meeting would be organized somewhere in Lower Mainland. I do a quilt project here and there, kind of design my own, recently started looking at the pros and how it is done elsewhere.

  6. Cathy says:

    I will have to check out a meet up, but what I would really like is for people to learn how to use Craftsy, specifically where to find the pattern for a project. My project pages are filled with comments asking for the pattern, when the link to it is already posted right there on the project page.

  7. Vick says:

  8. Nadine Nesbitt says:

  16. I know there are a lot of crafters in my area. I see them and talk with them at our local yarn store. I just don’t know if they visit here or the internet at all. I’m happy just being a part of the online community. I’ve met ladies from all over the world with each their own unique touch of handmade items. We share our tecniques and made up patterns and we have so much fun! Life is so full of surprises, who knows, there might be a chance of meeting :’} I joined from New Iberia, Louisiana.

  17. I will love to host one in Tarrytown New York, but I have to look the place…
