SF BAY AREA CCCOE'rs first meet-up

SF Bay Area CCCOE'rs had their first meet-up, Saturday, March 29, 2008. Wrenay Charlton of shopwhimsy.etsy.com supplied us with the following update of the meeting. They had about 10 members show up during our 2 hour time frame. Theew was much chatter about our stores, interests, and just general information. There were a few non-members who hopefully will decide to join our group.

They all agreed they would like to have a monthly meeting to build our network and discuss other marketing opportunities. We would also like to use these times to trade materials, supplies, etc. Every quarter we would like to get together for a workshop on different art/craft techniques that would be run by a fellow etsy member.

Several of us plan to attend the Maker Fair/Bizzare Bazaar May 3rd & 4th. So if anyone wants to carpool, perhaps it can be worked out closer to the event. Also, Annie from curbsidetreasure.etsy.com was selected to participate in the Bazaar. She will be sharing a table with blissful.etsy.com Congrats to Annie!

Stephanie from beetlelady.etsy.com volunteered to have a Post-Maker Fair get together at her house-details to follow.

It was really great to have such a big turn-out! I volunteered to plan the meeting for next month, which will also be a location close to BART.

Photos from our meeting can be seen at the Yahoo Group page.
