     Not only will you find a fantastic group of local creative / crafty / artistic kindred spirits, you are sure to find Seattle Handmade to be a group of warm, friendly people who really care about who you are and what you're up to. No cliques here...we encourage *everyone* to participate in our events...you'll be pleasantly surprised at how nice we are ;)

    on Apr 16, 2014.

  • Seattle Handmade (formerly etsyRAIN)

     I must have misread the invitation. I was hoping to hear from the Etsy rep about how to expand my wholesale business and utilize key words to get more shoppers to my shop The part of the conversation I heard was mostly about the problems of large companies on Etsy. I had to leave early to get kids so maybe the part I would have found relevant came after I left.

     Anyone in the general Seattle area, who has an Etsy store should think about joining. It is a large & creative group that has many interesting meetings & challenges. I would like to see more meetings further south, so that it would be simpler for me to attend.

     This is a great way to get connected and stay connected with fellow artisans - especially since it's very difficult for me to get to Seattle. I live on Whidbey and work full-time on the island. I wish I could get to more events...

    on Jul 29, 2010.

  • Seattle Handmade (formerly etsyRAIN)

     It's a good way to meet other Etsians, it's unbelievably great to have something in North Seattle and not in someplace unreachable (for someone without a car) like Bellevue, and since so much of an artistic life is alone, what a great way to break out of solitary quality and yet with people who share similar interests. 

    on Jul 21, 2010.

  • Seattle Handmade (formerly etsyRAIN)

     'cause it rules! 

    on Jul 8, 2010.

     It's fun to get out and meet other craft-minded people and it was easy to find the group inside the location since they had their crafting supplies on the table they were working on. It was great to see ideas shared while everyone was working on their projects. You might even learn a new craft or at least learn about one you haven't heard of before.
