Heya lovelies, two weeks ago when Etsy had their worldwide craft parties, I was invited to the one held in Singapore. It was a global celebration of meeting like-minded craft junkies and simply crafting together!
Organised and pulled together by sisters and owners of Simply For Love, Salinah and Nuraisah, the Etsy Craft Party is in its third year running in Singapore. Three years ago when the sisters realised that Singapore was lacking in summer craft fairs and the culture of making. they decided to apply to Etsy as a craft party host, thereby starting an annual event of celebrating and sharing everything handmade on the little red dot.
This year’s Etsy Craft Party theme, Kaleidoscope: Paper Taking Shape, explores the multi-facets and strengths of paper in craft-making.
“Kaleidoscopes represent many individual pieces coming together to create something beautiful — much like the dynamic shops that make up Etsy.”
The venue was The Playtent, which by itself was a very creative space where artists and emerging artists call home.
Delectable munchies sponsored by Dainty Candy and Puteri’s Baking Boutiq.
There were several stations to try out different paper crafts, and my favourite was the one where I learned how to make a bracelet out of magazine pages. I deal with fabric more often in my work, but it was nice for a change to explore other types of crafts.
We gathered for the lucky draw which gave away REALLY REALLY attractive prizes sponsored by various Singapore-based Etsy sellers. I was crossing my fingers that I may win something, but…
It’s okay, I went home with some goodies in my gift bag!
