Going to California with the Craftcation Conference

by Nikki

Remember your do-or-die New Year’s resolution to ditch your soul sucking dead-end job? It’s now February and you’re still selling out — spending all your after-work hours sobbing bitterly into pints of Guinness (or salted-caramel ice cream). Craftcation Indie Business & DIY Conference on March 22-25, 2012 in Ventura, California is coming to the rescue! This three-day indie business conference, sponsored by BUST Magazine, focuses on starting or growing an art, craft or food-centered small business. Rekindle your occupational inspiration and learn how to maximize social media, brand yourself, sell at craft shows/Etsy and navigate merchandising, accounting and legal issues.

And if selling doesn’t suit you, you can spend your entire Craftcation cooking, sewing, cheese making, canning/preserving and jewelry making with craftelebrities like, embroidery artist Jenny Hart (of Sublime Stitching), Aida Mollenkamp (Ask Aida on the Food Network and foodCrafters on the Cooking Channel), Kathy Cano-Murillo (artist, syndicated columnist, and author of the popular CraftyChica.com) and Cathy Callahan (who presented her Cathy of California craft kits on The Martha Stewart Show).

Who knows? March just might be the first month of the rest of your life.
