Attendees are encouraged to bring photos and examples of your booth setup for discussion and feedback. The workshop will cover topics including:

  • How to select the right show for you
  • Inventory needs
  • Booth layout and setup
  • Taking payments
  • Promotion

These are just a few of the topics Jenny and Sabrina will cover. Craft shows are your chance to set up a mini pop-up show showcasing your work.

Sponsor Spotlight: Dallas Makerspace

We are so excited to have Dallas Makerspace as a sponsor for the 2014 Jingle Bash. We are big fans! They are a non-profit, shared community workshop and laboratory located in Carrollton.

Members get 24/7 access to the space and tools as well as discounts for some classes and workshops. Dallas Makerspace has laser cutters, a full wood shop, 3D printers, an electronics lab and much more. So basically, we're saying you can make anything there.  

Dallas Makerspace hosts a weekly open house at 7 p.m. every Thursday. It's a great opportunity to meet makers and tour the space. They have an all-volunteer team. The 501(c)(3) organization is made up of local artists, engineers, makers and thinkers who enjoy creating and learning new skills.

Sponsor Spotlight: Dallas Makerspace

Dallas Makerspace is like your big brother’s cool garage workshop that you’re not allowed to even go in. There are laser cutters, and a full wood shop, 3D printers, an electronic’s lab, and lots of cool people hanging out in a 6,000+ square foot space.

But, here’s the best part: you can go in. And make all the things.

Members of Dallas Makerspace have regular meetings and they also schedule classes. Coming up are robotics workshops and blacksmithing. Yeah, blacksmithing. Some are open to the public, so just check on the calendar page and inquire.

We at Etsy Dallas love them because, like our all-volunteer team, the makers at Dallas Makerspace are an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) organization made up of local artists, engineers, makers, and thinkers who enjoy making things and learning new skills.

We’re happy to have this group of enthusiastic makers on board with us to sponsor The Jingle Bash. Stop by their table at the bash to learn more!
