Michigan Street Team

Here’s a big ol’ Etsy shout out to the Michigan Street Team! They’ve been taking the spirit of the Etsy Labs to the streets of Michigan in an attempt to spread the word about Etsy and share their varied skills — not only with other street team members, but the public as well! As Etsy Labs’ own Mary Contrary put it,

“The [Michigan Street Team] ladies promoted the event all over the Etsy forums and in the area to spread the word about the event. What a great way to bring what we are doing here at the Brooklyn Labs to their own area! This is exactly the type of initiative we want you all to be taking with your teams and expanding the Etsy love all over! I KNOW lots of you have been wanting an Etsy Labs in your own area, and this is the perfect way to bring the concept there within your own team!”

M.S.T. members Heidi of Designchic and Danielle of PreciousPups recently organized a skill-sharing event called the “Make-Out Session.” They named it as such because they’d be would be leading skill shares in a focused “session” and, well, making things! As Heidi explains, “Yesterday we had a ‘make-out session’. Taryn from TalkingSquid did an embroidery demo and Danielle did a glass etching demo. [See Alison of PartPencil’s glass below!] It was a lot of fun, (and) I’m hoping that we can do them on a monthly basis.”

P.S. Have you been taking initiatives with your team and setting up events in your area? We’d really love to hear about them, and show them off as examples for other teams! Send your information to
