Midwest Craft Con is going to be an amazing weekend full of insightful talks, lively discussions and useful information to take back to your craft business. But it’s also a celebration of living a crafty life, and we’ve built in plenty of time for socializing during the con. We encourage hanging out in the Hayes ballroom and the trade show area after hours, where we’ll have a cash bar available. You can bring a project you’re working on, or try a new technique with our sponsors or take part in some craftivities we’ve set up for you. During trade show hours we’ll have a coloring wall you can contribute to, and the Price Doctor will also be in: You can get a quick 10-minute consultation on your pricing from one of our expert speakers. Friday and Saturday nights, a few cornerstone craftivities will be happening in the Hayes ballroom:
Friday after 8:30 p.m.
- Crafty Spelling Bee: Test your knowledge of arts and craft related words in this spelling bee. There will be prizes!
- Googly Eye University: Enroll to glue eyes on images from vintage mags. Make cards, keepsakes, whatever. No judgment. Diplomas awarded.
Saturday after 8 p.m.
- Craft Corner Death Match: Compete in small teams to create short-order crafty concoctions and win prizes for your creativity!
- Crafty Karaoke: Grab the mic and sing your heart out. Crafty song parodies are highly encouraged.
