Trailblazin' the Craft Scene Since 2007

Etsy Dallas, the original Dallas team and the first city team in Texas, is a cooperative craft collective of artists and designers living and working in Dallas who sell their wares on Etsy, the web's premiere marketplace for all things hip and handmade. Etsy Dallas boasts talent from a range of mediums and crafts, and is independently run by its members.

 

Because of the determination of the original members, Etsy Dallas has become a force in the handmade movement, both locally and beyond. In the wake of Etsy Dallas' inception in 2007, other Texas teams have formed including Etsy Austin, Alamo City Etsy, Etsy Fort Worth, Northeast Texas Etsy, Artisans of Houston and North Dallas Etsy. More than two years later, Etsy Dallas continues to be the model as a leader in the art/craft scene.

 

Mission

The mission of Etsy Dallas is to promote the handmade movement in the Greater Dallas area.

 

Goals

> To promote each others' goods by selling locally in the Greater Dallas area.

> To promote awareness of the handmade movement and indie lifestyle, with a focus on our Etsy shops.

> To act as a cooperative resource and support network for each others' businesses.

> To forge friendships with creative people living in our community and beyond.

 

History

Etsy Dallas was founded in September 2007 by a handful of local artists and crafters, including current leaders Stephanie Hindall, Pamela Michelle and Carrie Partch. Eager to spread the handmade movement across the Metroplex, ED leaders organize two local craft shows, the Spring Bash and Jingle Bash, that have garnered city-wide support and national credibility. Etsy Dallas has transformed itself over the years into a tight-knit collaborative group that supports each other's handmade endeavors through friendship and camaraderie.
