Find Your Group – Craftcation 2017

I have never been to a Craftcation where I didn’t walk away with a Contact List full of new friends and advisors and cohorts.  Every corner of this conference is populated with people who understand what it means to be extroverted, introverted, timid, bold, gregarious, shy, ambitious, content, confident, and uncertain.

Regardless of your own personal goals or personality type, you will find YOUR group of awesome people who are on the same path as you.

Craftcation takes place April 27-30, 2017, in the beach town of Ventura, California, (about an hour north of Los Angeles). Craftcation utilizes Ventura’s historic downtown buildings and businesses as well as the beach for special events like networking meet & greets, cocktail socials, a pop-up shop, opening celebration, yoga, as well as food and art tours.

Craftcation is Coming!

(Believe me, this is much better news than “Winter is Coming”.)

My first experience with Craftcation was in Spring of 2015.  I went looking for something that might educate, inspire, and propel me into starting my own crafting business.  I had the most timid of goals, a very sketchy level of self-confidence, and an absolutely no idea where to start.

By the end of 2015 I had flipped the switch on my Etsy store and put together a nice handful of product to sell.  I was taking my wares to comic conventions.  I was going to a local comic store once a month to cross-stitch with an amazing group of geeky crafters.

I went back to Craftcation in 2016.  Who would expect to get a second dose of inspiration and support equal to the first?  But that’s exactly what I got…and then some.  This year sees new projects, new ideas, new sales, and new inspiration.

Am I headed back to Craftcation in 2017?  There’s no question…

I’m going to have a lot more to say about Craftcation between now and April 2017.  All you need to know for now is that your chance to register is fast approaching.
