Brisbane Etsy Craft Party!!

Did you attend the Brisbane Etsy Craft Party on June 9th?  We did, and it was LOADS of fun!!

Hosted by Lisa and Wick from Salt House and supported by BrisStyle, the Brisbane Etsy Craft Party was an Etsy generated event held to celebrate musicians, painters, sculptors, photographers, farmers, hackers, gardeners, designers, jewellers, bookbinders, printmakers, teachers, makers and doers of all stripes, as well as art enthusiasts, curators, vintage lovers and supporters of the independently made. It wasn't just Brisbane taking part in this - Etsians all around the globe joined in to party!

The talented BrisStyler Jess from Epheriell showed us her latest issue of Bespoke zine

Etsy folk got together to chat all things Etsy and craft
