The Etsy Craft Party kicked off at 7pm Friday night and people were at Make Shop * Studio early ready to party!
Make And Etsy Dallas put together 2 awesome free crafts for our partiers to do, no sew bunting and fabric flower brooches!
All the crafts everyone turned out really cute. Dallas really has alot of crafty talent!!
Paco, the handmade donkey pinata hung out all night in our Etsy Dallas Photo Booth modeling with his new friends and their silly props.
See! Paco is so good at holding a pose.
We had 5 free raffles of free handmade goodies and crafty supplies. At the top of the evening, we did our biggest raffle, a brand new Kenmore Sewing Machine!! Then Make Shop * Studio offered up a surprise raffle for $100 card for free classes at Make! We are so happy for our 6 lucky winners who probably all muttered "I never win anything" right before they're numbers were called.
The evening ended like any 5th birthday, with the busting of a pinata. We were sad to see Paco go, but happy to find him stuffed with tasty candy and treats! Don't worry, we saved his head, and will properly mount him on a plaque. So you may see him again in our next photo booth!
Thanks to all who came and helped us put this party on. We had so much fun celebrating Etsy's 5th birthday.
