Meet Ups & Talks

Join our monthly meet ups – come and find out what we have planned, meet fellow creatives and get involved!

Meet other crafters for an informal catch up, share ideas and inspiration and get updates from the #btnetsy team to help you make the most of team opportunities.

Open to all whether you’re thinking of setting up a shop or a seasoned Etsy seller looking to catch up with the team.

February Meet up – First of 2019:

Our February meet up is our first of 2019 and will be an evening meet, taking place on the 5th February. We can’t wait to meet lots of new faces and catch up with regulars with lots of motivation for the year ahead.

Come along from 7pm and get yourself a drink and maybe a slice of cake and the agenda part of meeting will start at 7.30pm. The meet up will once again be held at The Square, New England Street, Brighton. Full details and map in our event here.

Everyone is welcome, from those who are seasoned sellers, to those who are only thinking about setting up a shop.

As its our first meet up of the year we expect it to be a busy one with lots of new members thinking of setting up a shop in 2019!

Bring along an example of what you make to show us all! A photo will do if the ‘real thing’ is too big and bulky to fit into your bag!

*Remember – we alternate meet ups between morning and evening, and change up the days too. If you can’t make this one, the next will be in the morning so hopefully we’ll see you there 🙂
