Hi All! I can never make it to any of the crafty get togethers because they are during the evening. Would anyone be interested in a daytime meeting?

Hi Tory,
That's a nice idea - evenings are probably more convenient for me overall but I could probably make a daytime meetup once in a while!

Thanks for responding Susan!

Anyone else up for maybe meeting during the day sometime? Just a casual get together at a coffee shop.

Sure, count me in. I lived in Edmonds. So, hopefully it's not in south or Bellevue. :) I hate traffic.

yes... I live in Edmonds as well. Mondays and Fridays are good for weekday meetings

Same here, I am always busy after 5pm, so I can never do get-togethers and I have to say it gets awfully lonely in my basement on my own. I live in Seattle/Ballard though and I am not much of a commuter - since it is your idea though, figure out where you'd hold the gathering.

Possibly. I always have good intentions of meeting in the evening but then I forget, or hibernate in the winter, or stay outside late in the summer. I would be willing to drive further during the day than I would for an evening meeting so Edmonds or Shoreline is not out of the question.

Karen, I live in Ballard too, we should meet for coffee!

I haven't been able to meet up for the regular meet-ups either. I have a conflict on the nights that events are close to me. I live in Redmond and can do a day time get together. Anyone interested?

If anyone wants to host an "official" etsyRAIN daytime event, that would be SO awesome and really appreciated! It doesn't have to be a long-term commitment if you don't want to...a one-time event would be great too!

Just email me at with a date, time and location and I'll announce it to the whole team so everyone who wants to get together can see you there!

Thanks so much everyone! :)

I like the idea of a daytime event, too. I'd love to meet other Etsians but evenings are busy with family stuff. I can't do Fridays and would prefer to stay north of Seattle...gas prices, you know!

Thanks for suggesting this - Great idea!
