If you are an East Coast crafter, or just someone who wants to cultivate your crafty side, are you in for a treat!! The Etsy Labs are now open for everyone and anyone who wants to explore the craft world.
The genius guys and gals over at Etsy have put together a place to learn and share your talents. The facilities are available to all members of Etsy.com and Patron of the Labs (PAL). To become a member of PAL all you need to do is show up during Lab hours (11am to 6pm every day) and pay your dues. Right now, February is totally free! In exchange for using the space the guys are asking that you show up with a "donation, a smile and an eagerness to help".
Starting in March there will be a basic $20/month membership fee and superlow $5 hourly fee for use of equipment. Membership includes unlimited wi-fi, heat, good conversation and a clean toilet. The monthly fee is applicable towards your first two hours of equipment use.This is a great opportunity for those of us who work out of our homes to get out of the house, creatively interact with many, many talented people and gain help and inspiration from each other! I really wish that I was less that 3000 miles away! I'd be there in a heartbeat!
