For the past few months we've been working on the next big thing for Indie Craft Parade, and today we're so excited to share it with you. If you attended Indie Craft Parade this year, you may have heard a little about this already, but here's the official announcement. The Indie Craft Parade mission is to empower the creative community by cultivating a knowledge and respect of handcrafted goods while providing valuable resources to independent artists. We're always looking for ways to benefit those in our industry, which is the impetus for our very first Makers Summit. It's a one-day conference focused on art, craft, and design and jam-packed with golden information to either start or grow your small business.
Join us February 2, 2013 to learn collaboratively through panel discussions, one-on-one sessions and keynote speeches from industry experts like Stephen Fraser, founder of Spoonflower. Conference tickets are $100 and include breakfast & lunch.
Besides an incredible day of creative business sessions, we're finishing off the conference with The Best Craft Night Ever! The Makers Summit Afterparty is a great time to mingle with both peers and experts over dinner, followed by a time of making! The party is separate from the conference and tickets can be purchased for $50.
We have so much more to tell you about the Makers Summit, so stay tuned! Our website will be updated with all of the information in the next couple of weeks. Mark your calendars!
