Have you ever thought to yourself…

  • I’d love to take a vacation while making things with awesome people.
  • I have a great idea for a business that I want to turn into my full-time job but I don’t know where to start.
  • I have a successful business and I’m ready to take it to the next level but I’m not sure how.
  • I want to make meaningful connections with people in my field but I don’t have the time or opportunity to make it happen.

Craftcation is the place where you can make it happen!

Craftcation 2016, Here I Come!!!

Go back to the birthing room of the fledgling crafting business that is An Unexpected Hobby, and you’ll find Craftcation 2015 standing over my scared little laboring body, shouting, “PUSH, PUSH!!”

Since that amazingly inspiring weekend, I’ve created this blog, developed dozens of cross-stitch patterns, taught classes, and put together stitching kits to sell at my local comic book store and comic book conventions.  I’m on the cusp of opening an Etsy shop with digital patterns available.

I’ve never felt so overwhelmed and empowered all at the same time.  Balancing a personal business project, staying creatively inspired, keeping up with the day job, making it all work without forever alienating friends and family…it’s all a full-time job.  I’ve come so far and there’s still so much to get off the launch pad.

So it’s back to Craftcation 2016 for an infusion of inspiration, networking, learning, sharing, crafting, eating, drinking (yay!).
