Okay. First, let me say that I love, love, LOVE living in Seattle. I’ve been all over the country and have to say, this is my Home. I love everything about it…save for one thing: The lack of a truly cohesive, supportive creative community. Granted, Carrie and the members of the newly formed EtsyRain (aka: Etsy Seattle street team) are doing what we can to change all of that…but change is slow going here in the Emerald City.

When it comes to coordinating and encouraging a bunch of crafty individuals to get out of their homes/studios and get together to make things really happen, nothing can top what Portland (OR) has done for themselves! For example: They’ve got Sister Diane who runs CraftyPod and DIY Alert (amongst other things!) who has recently posted THIS — “Mapping the Crafty” — a Google Map showing all of the craft / DIY shops, boutiques, supply stores and even places to learn stuff on one convenient map!

I can’t even imagine how much work went into creating such a thing…it’s amazing.

Rock on, Sister Diane — you are truly awesome.

(Thanks to for posting it on their blog — you totally rock as well…)

    Oooh this will come in handy I’m off to Portland this weekend! Marlo we really need to get together sometime…I spoke to you through meetup…I was the one who wanted to go to by the pound next week. Toronto has a thriving arts and crafts community and since I have moved here I have been missing it so much. I would love for Seattle have the same type of community!
