We had a great time at Etsy Craft Party 2013. I was hostess again this year. I had help from friends Melisssa, Gina and Jamie.
Fourteen guest of the 39 signed up were able to attend. We had several craft possibilities set up at tables at Mosaics Church in Lee’s Summit.
One group was busy knitting a simple hat pattern for newborns and one was crocheting hats. These will be take to a local hospital.
Another table was knitting fingerless mittens to take to a local mission.
A third table was busy making cards for Operation Write Home. These cards are given to soldiers to use to write home to their families.
Gift cards to Starbucks, a set of quilting/blocking pins and a set of paint brushes were offered up as giveaways throughout the evening.
With snacks provided by the participants, along with water and pop provided by Cosentino’s Price Chopper in Lee’s Summit, everyone was well fed and laughter filled the room.
I’ve already been asked when the next event is and ‘can’t we do this more often?’
Thank you to all who participated and helped.
