In our previous post, we announced that it was that time of the year when Etsy Craft Parties are happening all over the world. A local, up and coming Etsy group called Handmade in Malaysia, had their first, successful event of the year. More than 20 Etsy users and non Etsy users gathered at Gamuda Walk for a weekend meet up to mingle with other fellow artists and crafters. It brought the creative individuals together, and to some, newfound group of friends who shared similar thoughts and interests.
The Handmade in Malaysia group was founded by two ladies, Japanese soap maker Masako Ito of Soapy Natural and Hong Kong born & UK raised jewellery artist Evelyn Chan of YiliYuli. Only 6-month old and Handmade in Malaysia has already gained more than 400 crafty members.
Editor's note: FYI, there are two Etsy groups in Malaysia; Team Etsy Malaysia and Handmade in Malaysia. Team Etsy Malaysia was founded in Year 2009, a pioneer Etsy group in the Malaysian Etsy community with strong followers. Team Etsy Malaysia's craft party was held at Art Row, Publika.
