Cupcakes + Embroidery + West Elm + Etsy + Handmade Philly = Tons of Crafty Goodness!!
We had a wonderful time at West Elm, as we teamed up to host a workshop for this year’s Etsy Craft Party. This time around we focused on embroidering photos, and tons of people made it out to the event. Thanks everyone!!
If you were unable to make it out on Friday, or if that event just left you yearning for more, fear not! We are having another meet up this afternoon, from 4-6 pm!
Note: if we mislabeled your work, or missed crediting you by name, leave a comment and we will gladly correct the image.
Friday, June 6 at 6:00pm – 8:00pm

You’re invited to Etsy Craft Party 2014: Recapture: Bring new meaning to your photographs. Etsy Craft Party is a one-day celebration of meeting and making. This year’s theme focuses on transforming photographs into display-worthy works of art using a variety of craft supplies and creative techniques.
Handmade Philly will be hosting the event in the West Elm store downtown.
Check out the Etsy Craft Party page for the digital party kit, photos and more.
We’ll have snacks, time to meet and greet and a craft you can make and take home! You can bring some pictures to transform or use some of the ones we’ll have on hand.

Can’t wait to meet you there!
March’s meet up at The Clay Studio in Olde City was fabulous. First, we learned how to alter ceramics using decals and porcelain paint, then, we took a tour of the gallery and the studios. Many thanks to our member, Meg Perine for setting up the event, and to the Clay Studio’s curator, Garth Johnson, for leading the demo and the tour! And to the artists of The Clay Studio, for being so welcoming as we walked around and toured the space.
We took a ton of photos. So many, in fact, that we will be posting them in two separate posts.

Well, it’s been one doozy of a Winter. What’s this, snowstorm #16? When will it be Spring??? Though it’s tempting to hunker down and hibernate, it’s important to stay active and social during these long winter months. So that’s just what we’ve been doing. Here are some pics from last month’s Handmade Philly meet up held at Cerulean Arts on Ridge Avenue, right near the Divine Lorraine. Next meet up is this Sunday, so dust off those cobwebs and come on out! It’s time to mix and mingle!!
January’s meeting will be held in South Philadelphia at Jed Williams Gallery.
Date: January 19th
Time: 3-5 pm
