Boredom Be Gone – Virtual Crafting is Here!
In this time of social distancing, it’s hard to find ways to connect with the people you love. Human connection is more important than ever though and that’s why we dreamed up the idea of virtual craft parties. It’s time to beat the boredom and reconnect!
Imagine being able to talk to and see all your family or group of friends (or both!) in real-time while sharing the experience of making something together. You could receive expert instruction, drink and eat whatever you’d like (bonus – you don’t have to drive home afterward!), and enjoy each other’s company. This is what we want to give you.
How Do Virtual Parties Work?
The process is as easy as 1, 2, 3!
- Share the concept with your friends!
- Purchase a to go craft kit from the available designs.
- Contact us with a date roughly 10 days after the last person has ordered their kit. This ensures everyone has all the materials ready and available on the day of your party. You can also message us on Facebook or Email Us.
Do I Need Special Software?
Using a free software program called Zoom, we will create a party room just for you. Rooms can hold a great many people, but it would be best if you limit your party size to be less than 20. Zoom works on all mobile, desktop, and tablet devices. In addition to your family and/or friends, a Reclaimed By You staff member will be with you to help guide you through the process and answer any questions that come up. It will be just like the private events we set up in our shop, in Ellicott City, Maryland! Only now it will be done in the comfort of your own home!
Other Ideas for Virtual Crafting…
These virtual craft parties are a great way to celebrate a birthday party, a wedding shower or just beat the boredom. And they are a really great idea for all ages (with parental guidance, of course). As an added bonus, here at Reclaimed By You, all of our reclaimed wood pieces have a label on the back that will supply you with information about the source of the wood. So if you find yourself as a homeschooling Mom, like so many others, these kits are great for an art project as well as history, geography, or environmental subject areas, as you design your homeschool lesson plan.
If you’d like to set up a virtual craft party of your own, you can contact us to secure the date and time. After you purchase the kit you want, your time will be reserved and you can spread the word to the rest of your party!
Hope to see you soon!
