Stop thinking about it and just do it: Early bird tickets for Midwest Craft Con are half gone! The first 100 tickets are $199 each, and after that, the full price is $249. Get your early bird ticket while you can — the early bird discount ends Oct. 31 or when the 100 tickets sell out, whichever comes first.
When you sign up to be with us in beautiful Columbus, Ohio, from Feb. 19 to 21, 2016, you’re also joining our community of makers on Facebook, where you can share resources and find a roommate or travel partner.
Our keynote speakers, Lisa Congdon and Abby Glassenberg, are ready to inspire you with their talks, and a host of craft business sessions will help you make the most of your vocation. The initial lineup of speakers for Midwest Craft Con will be posted next week and includes experts from around the country talking about things including:
- Awesome Email Newsletters
- Packaging for Retail
- Make a Marketing Plan
- How to Stay In Love with Your Handmade Business
- Acting Lessons for Shy Crafters
- Etsy Alternatives: eCommerce for Makers
- Craft Show Booth Critiques
- Contracts for Crafters
- Intellectual Property and Copyright
- Accounting and Bookkeeping Basics
- Working with a Wholesale Rep
- Mindfulness + the Creative Mind
After hours, we’ll have lots of opportunities for socializing, crafting and shenanigans, with a trade show throughout the weekend featuring some of our sponsors.
When you buy your ticket, you also have the option to donate to our scholarship fund. Consider giving a dollar or two to help out a crafter who can’t afford this awesome experience on their own right now. We’ll be posting information for people interested in applying for a scholarship later this fall!
