something awesome this way comes

have you heard? the summit of awesome is rolling into town and scheduled to pitch its tents may 1st through 3rd in our nation's capitol. the lovely ladies of hello craft have been hard at work lining up all sorts of acts for the seminal event, which will feature seminars by superstars in the field and hands-on demonstrations by dynamite makers from all over the country. a few of the highlights include:
  • a screening of the film handmade nation
  • a chance to talk to etsy ceo maria thomas
  • time to sit and stitch with jenny hart of sublime stitching
  • the opportunity to network with other crafters, share stories and support each other!
this is just a taste of the activities going on under the big top all weekend. to see more, check out the schedule as it comes together on hello craft.

the crafty convention kicks off on thursday night, april 30th, with a maker mix and mingle party in downtown dc. there's sure to be some chickadee activity in the area over the weekend. and friend and craft companion dandelion blu is getting in on the action too! she'll be sharing her professional photography skills in a learning session on friday afternoon.

the line-up is still coming together, so there still may be some surprises in store. keep up with the happenings by following the updates on the hello craft site or stay tuned to this station. registration for the weekend is open and space is limited! so strike while the steam iron is hot, you don't want to be left out of the greatest show on planet craft.
