Looking for adventure? Here’s one you should definitely consider – Craftcation!
I’ll be there speaking and teaching alongside awesome creatives like Creativebug founder Jeanne Lewis, Paper ‘N Stitch’s Brittni Melhoff, The Crafty Chica Cathy Cano-Murillo, Craftypod’s Diane Gilleland, knitwear design extraordiane Anne Kuo Lukito and many others. The conference is being held March 21 – 24th in Ventura, CA which sounds like an awesome location that I can’t wait to check out.
The best part is that I got to meet the organizers, Delilah + Nicole, at Alt Summit a few weeks ago and they described Craftcation as “if Maker Faire and Alt Summit had a baby”. They also promised late night PJ dance parties. I can’t wait! Here’s the full info:
