Letterpress Craft Night

Registration is now open for the next event in our Craft Night series sponsored by Bing! I will be teaching a basic letterpress class at our Art Studio in San Francisco on February 5th. We will be printing Valentine’s Day Cards! Craft Nights are free but a deposit is required to hold your spot and it will be refunded the night of the event. (If you can’t come, you must send someone in your place.) We want to make sure that everyone has a chance to get crafty, so if you registered for our last event (calligraphy), please don’t register for this one. Go here for more information and to register.

    wow… 1 minute in and already sold out… this is so sad…

  • Livi says:

    I can’t believe it sold out in one minute. Do you let others register early?

  • Katherine says:

    1 minute and sold out. Really sad and really ridiculous. Waited by the computer and everything :(

  • Lindsay says:

    That happened crazy fast! I was even at the site before the event opened, refreshed, and sold out.

  • Jenny F. says:

    1 minute and I was there I just had clicked on the wrong thing… this is crazy

  • Bri says:

    I agree that it is very disheartening when every craft night sells out in 1 minute. Maybe there could be a sort of lottery system to make sure that new people are at every single session?

  • Lindsay says:

    Jordan, can you host a reject craft night for all of us that have tried multiple times to get into your events? Perhaps those of us leaving comments can get priority on the invite list? :-)

  • Court says:

    Gosh dangit. I waited too : (

  • Still can’t get into the class, super sad…

  • Lila says:

    It seems like it’s sold out before it becomes available. Maybe you have to be an insider to go. That would be a shame. If not, maybe a waitlist would be a better idea when it “pending”.

    • jordan says:

      Hey Lila! I’m so sorry you weren’t able to get a ticket. We have 20 seats available (40 total per evening) and there is no pre-registration, it is all first come first serve. I recommend being ready at 9am and have a friend do the same so there is a better chance you’ll get a spot. We even limit people from attending 2 events in a row to allow for more people to come.

  • Jena says:

    Soo sad! Would you consider adding another night to the calendar? I’m so bummed.

  • Amy says:

    Hmmm same here. I refreshed the page at exactly 9 am and it was already sold out. What gives?

  • Jenny says:

    I am extremely disheartened. I logged into eventbrite it let me put in quantity and then when I click buy now it was sold out. I concur on some sort of a lottery system or something. I would gladly pay $20 for this class.

  • Tiff says:

    NOT AGAIN!!! I too, waited by the computer and no luck!! Geez, so discouraging. :(((((((((((((

  • icolby says:

    Hi all, please don’t hate me, but I just wanted to post a comment to say that you definitely don’t have to be an insider to attend. I sympathize with everyone who was unable to get tickets, as I had previously tried for 2 others without success. I think it’s really just a matter of who clicks at the right time— keep trying, everyone, and thank you Jordan, for making these awesome Craft Nights happen!

  • Jena says:

    Ladies, perhaps we should have our own craft night. I’ve got wine if you’ve got art supplies. Who wants to come over?

  • Maggie says:

    Well, why don’t we try and create an alternative craft night? What is it about these that is so attractive? That it’s Jordan and we adore her? That it’s free and comes with sponsored swag? Or is it just because we want to get together, feel nice about being crafty, and have someone give us instructions on how to do something neat?
    Couldn’t we create some lesser event and still have it be cool? Oh Fair-to-Middling-Day?

  • amy says:

    I was also ready at 9am and was able to get a ticket. Since there are so many trying to enroll, I imagine it was just luck as to when I refreshed my browser. Once you are able to select a ticket, you have 15 minutes to complete your transaction (thus the pending status everyone sees). I imagine that means that if the max amount of people (20?) click on the ticket selection within the first five seconds of the site being available, then the ‘pending’ status would come up really quickly. Hope that helps explain it…

  • Nancy says:

    I agree with Icolby. Don’t be so disheartened, there will be other events in the future. I, too, had tried signing up for previous events right on the dotted time but couldn’t find tickets.

  • Jenny says:

    I would love to just hang out and meet some crafty local ladies! I have glitter and art supplies aplenty! I was just hoping to connect with some lovely women who have a passion for creating!

  • Sunray says:

    Hey Jordan. I remember you used to offer letterpress classes. Do you think you’ll offer that again? I’d love the learn the process! :)

  • Jules says:

    I’m so sad this sold out so quickly! I am dying to learn about letterpress (and get my hands on a press). Anyone know of other options for letterpress in the city?

    I love the idea of planning craft nights on our own. Let’s do it! I’m in!

    (also if anyone ends up not being able to go…pretty please let me take your spot – I’ll make you something!)

    Thank you for hosting these Jordan! Hopefully one day I’ll get in!

  • robin says:

    If there is a waitlist would you be kind enough to add me to it? Or if you add another class to accomodate all of us who missed getting in….? Please?

    Looks wonderful!

  • Keely says:

    Sold out! So bummed to miss out. Looks like it will be a lot of fun. Any chance you will be adding more spots? Please oh please?

  • Stacey says:

    Dude, it’s like getting Coachella tickets.

  • Lila says:

    Thanks for the heads up Jordan. You’re a popular gal. :)

  • Love letterpress! Looking forward to seeing the output of this class…you’ll be sharing, I’m sure?!

  • Milan says:

    That’s great these are selling out so fast—I can smell the desperation in these comments! But uh, lmk if you have a backdoor trap or extra goodies or something :) Webcast?

  • michelle says:

    Bummer! I’ve tried for the last two of these and figure there is no way to get in unless we all sit at our computers all day waiting for the link to go live. Too bad, because they sound like great fun evenings, learning about things that I really want to learn about! I would be more than willing to actually pay for these same classes (especially if they were a little longer) – have you considered that as an option?

  • I’m so glad you’re still doing these! I used to read you daily many moons ago when I was Passementeries Diary in Paris, and I’m back in the blogging world now, looking up old friends. Looking forward to keeping up with you again!

    Sx

  • Karen says:

    Unfortunately, 9:00 a.m. is the worst time for me to be at a computer so I’ll never be able to get tickets (unless the time changed to 9:00 pm!). But it’s not a big deal to me (and I don’t care about swag – I just want to learn). There are plenty of places to take great craft classes in the SF Bay Area. Check out San Francisco Center for the Book if you’re interested in letterpress: http://sfcb.org/workshops.

  • Robyn says:

    Yes, I vote you do this whole craft series again. There are clearly plenty of us who would support future events. Love it!

  • Amy says:

    These sound like so much fun! Do you know of anything similiar that happens in Chicago? Perhaps, a sponser or organization that supports this kind of fun. I still haven’t found a good craft circle here after moving in 2011.

  • MissKathy says:

    Such a pity it sold out but well done on the speed in which it did. Unfortunately I would have missed out any way – being on the otherside of the world and all – but may be the event could be hosted online, like a webinar with virtual attendee opinion. Or maybe post a video of the event afterwards for everyone who missed out.

  • This is one of those things that I have been looking at doing for a while, but this is definitely a good reason to get on and do it!

  • Boudjee says:

    Hi there,

    I have only seen this post now. Will you plan to give any other classes in the near future? I would love to get the chance to attend and learn about letterpress. Pleeeeease! :)
