Craftcation 2017 Registration Opens Today! I’ll be presenting, too!

words-craft-tableI’m excited to tell you that I’m teaching at  Craftcation: Business + Makers Conference next Spring 2017! Craftcation is an annual four-day event featuring industry professionals leading attendees in hands-on DIY workshops and creative business classes. I’ll be teaching 2 beginner crochet classes and possibly sitting on a panel or two (TBA!).

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! Let’s craft party!

If you’re a maker, blogger or creative business owner,  join me for four inspiring days that you’ll never forget. Craftcation has over 80 hands-on workshops and business classes so whether you’re coming to craft, grow your business or a little bit of both, there’s lots of making, meeting and learning in store for 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.

Registration opens 10.13.16 and the first 50 people to register get $50 off!

I’ll see you there!

“I Love Yarn” Day is October 15th!


I Love Yarn Day is on October 15th! Whether people prefer to knit it, crochet it, spin it, weave it or bomb it, the goal is for every yarn-crafter to share their know-how and love of yarn with someone new on October 15th. Throughout the month, we can work on helping a friend with a new skill and project, and then on October 15th, it’s time to share photos! Here are some other ways you can get involved including some giveaways, contests, and a scavenger hunt with some pretty cool prizes! There will also be a virtual “yarn bomb” on Facebook!

You can use the hashtags #iloveyarnday and #stitchitforward so we can all motivate each other and see each other’s projects and posts! Also here are I Love Yarn Day’s social media links so you can follow along! Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest
