What if I don’t have a business but just want to hang out and make stuff?
Not everyone who comes to Craftcation has a business. We have lots of attendees who come solely for the DIY workshops and fun. You can fill all four days with hands-on workshops where you’ll bust out more amazing creations that you can imagine. From embroidery to block printing to sewing to painting to weaving + crochet + knitting to art journaling… we’ve got you covered!
What if I don’t currently have a business but have some ideas?
Figuring out where to focus your time and energy is easy when someone who’s been there before is guiding you. Craftcation will help you hone in on your perfect idea and create an action plan for your dream business.
What if I already have a business?
If you’re like us and you’ve been running your creative business for a while you have a whole different set of needs than beginners. You need the next-level mentorship that Craftcation provides so you can play a bigger game, balance your life, battle burnout, create alternative sources of income, be more productive and hone in on exactly what you need to do to make your brand even bigger and more profitable.
What if I’m an introvert and nervous to attend alone?
Time and time again we hear Craftcation attendees tell us how the Craftcation community is unlike that from any other conference because it is so welcoming. There are no cliques at Craftcation. When you walk through the doors, you’re part of the Craftcation family. If you need help connecting, we have your back and will introduce you to your next best friends.
