Fargo, ND joined the Etsy Global Crafty Party this past June 6, 2014!  We had such a sweet turnout that we didn’t really anticipate – thank you all for coming and creating!  Here’s a little photo recap of the wonderful night of recapturing old photos (amazing photography by Penny Burns of Northern Stories!).  We had such a great time working with photos to get them off our phones and computers and onto our home walls that look forward to more photo workshops in the future!


Our party was held at the Elevate Executive Meeting Suite downtown Fargo.  It was a tish dreary outside, but we still were able to open it up to the beautiful patio!

Workshop instructor and coffeeshop manager Angelique guided attendees through a wall banner that could be sewn or glued.  We were stoked how many people chose to try out a sewing machine who hadn’t done much sewing (or any!) before.  Super cool.

Taea Made’s Emily manned the embroidered photo station with her sweet background in embroidery and needlework!  Initially we planned for mostly teaching French knots but Emily was blown away by how adventurous people got in wanting to learn more stitches.

Attendee Brandi brought a HEDGEHOG.  Finley was a great creative inspiration.  SERIOUSLY.

My personal favorite is the tiny Polaroid necklace…super adorable.

Chelsea of Raine Design had the popular Polaroid coasters and tiny Polaroid necklaces.  At one point so many coasters were being created we had to run back to our shop to improvise with supplies to get everyone finished projects to take home!
