The 2nd Craft Soirée

  • Aug 28, 2012
It was ‘Craft Christmas’ all over again last Saturday! The 2nd Craft Soirée was held last August 18 at Pipino. This event is something that I came up with because I wanted to meet other crafters, and also for us to celebrate love for the handmade. (Read about the 1st Craft Soiree here.) It’s a huge success every time, and it seems more and more people are coming out of their ‘craft shells’, so I’m thinking of hosting the event every quarter!
The idea of the Craft Soirée is for each crafter to bring an x-number of crafts for each member of the group, and in exchange, each one will take home 1 craft each from everyone else. Each participant talks about what she does, her craft specialty, and the craft that she made for the group. It’s also a venue for sharing ideas, suppliers, and of course, meeting new friends!
In the beginning, everyone so quiet. Traffic was so bad that day, so we decided to serve lunch first, so we could wait for the other participants.
Thanks to my super supportive hoosband PJ for taking care of registration! 🙂
Crafters ranged from casual crafters to pros (pros meaning those that make sell crafts for a living). The crafters were divided into 3 groups. Each one brought at least 10 crafts to give away. So happy that crafters April, Mansy, Beam, Mikko and Lorra from the 1st Craft Soiree joined us again!
Check out the show-and-tell in photos! 🙂

The Craft Loot!
I wanted the crafters to share what they do with other people, too. Since the Craft Soirée is a closed door event, I asked everyone to pin a craft on the cork board, so that more people can see and appreciate their handmade products.. You can view the crafts up close at Pipino!
Here are more photos of the event:
Craft madness. The room was exploding with so much talent!
