Etsy Craft Party 2011 from Etsy on Vimeo.

This Friday, June 10th, Etsy is organizing a global (yes, global!) craft party: "No matter where you live or what you love to make, you are invited to participate. Musicians, painters, sculptors, photographers, farmers, hackers, gardeners, designers, jewelers, bookbinders, printmakers, teachers, makers and doers of all stripes, as well as art enthusiasts, curators, vintage lovers and supporters of the independently made, we're calling on you!"

"Last year, over 5,000 people participated in over 500 meetups from Dallas to Romania, and this year our goal is for over 15,000 people to share in the spirit of Craft Party." And since Etsy can't do this without you, they're "calling on your help to mobilize in your local community."
