Founded in 2008 by four crafters / craft fair organizers, Hello Craft is a non-profit trade association dedicated to the advancement of independent crafters and the handmade movement, as well as empowering small business owners and educating the public to the benefits of buying handmade. They actively pursue their mission through various events such as the annual 3-day conference, the Summit of Awesome.
Mark your calendars for Wednesday, June 16th, 2010 to Friday, June 18th, 2010 and join Hello Craft at the 2010 Summit of Awesome in Portland, Oregon. This year's Summit will take place at the McMenamins’ Kennedy School in the Alberta Arts District of Portland.
I am a big fan of Portland and can't wait for three days of seminars, speakers, workshops and overall awesomeness!
