I’ll let the Craftcation website speak for itself:

Craftcation is a three day indie business & DIY workshop conference. It’s a retreat to inspire, network and build upon the independent craft business community. Our objective is to ignite the entrepreneurial business spirit, strengthen skills and abilities of both seasoned business owners and newcomers to indie craft business. This is an opportunity to network, communicate and share with your peers, incorporating both business and fun. Craftcation features industry professionals leading attendees in DIY and indie business workshops, panel discussions and Q & A sessions.

Events and topics include:

Indie Business: how to start a crafty business, maximizing social media, blogging, ins & outs of indie craft shows, Etsy, wholesaling, merchandising, accounting, legal issues, branding, website design and more.

DIY workshops: screenprinting, sewing, canning & preserving, cheesemaking, needle arts, terrariums & edible gardens, organic bath products, jewelry and more.

Community: meet & greets, pop-up shops, yoga, bbq & cocktail socials and so much more!

Tickets go on sale today. (The first 50 people get $50 off!) Head over to the Craftcation website to learn more about conference and check out the schedule of awesome speakers and events!

Craftcation looks pretty fantastic to me, and I hear last year’s event was a blast! With so many of my pals speaking and leading events, I think I just might have to go this year. Who’s with me?
