School House Craft + A Giveaway!
We are excited to team up with School House Craft this year for their 5th annual fall conference in Seattle, WA! Artists and crafters from all over the Pacific Northwest come together for 2 days of classes, hands-on workshops and networking. We’ve been attendees to this event for the past few years and we are excited to be teaching a fun craft project this year during the Book Signing and Craft Social on Sunday, September 28th.


The mission of School House Craft is to help artists and craft makers find the knowledge they need to build businesses that last. This year’s conference is held September 27th & 28th at the Sunset Hill Community Club in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle. They have a full lineup of amazing small business classes and workshops led by some of our community’s most knowledgeable and inspirational speakers including Jena Coray, Blair Stocker, Tara Gentile, and more!

One and two day tickets include daily inspirational keynote addresses, over 17 classes and events as well as lunch and snacks. One day tickets are available for $85, two day tickets for $155 and individual classes for just $35.

    This is a great idea! My goal for this year is to restart my business that I let fall away after “life” got in the way. My main focus is business advice and planning. I make quilts and dabble in a little bit of everything else artsy I can think of. PS – I’m already on your mailing list so that counts as a second entry, right? 🙂

    My goal this year is to get my art licensed on many different products as well as gain clients for illustration projects. I can’t wait for Tara’s classes! Yay! Tweeted and Facebooked too! Can’t wait!

    Hi! I just found you via School House Craft. I’m a new maker (after many other “careers”) with a million ideas and the need to stay focused on one thing at a time. I’m leaving my day job in a few weeks, and my goal for the fall is to refine my style into a few signature pieces. I also want to tie all the loose ends into a cohesive business. I would love to go to the Seattle weekend!
    I’m looking forward to following you via blog and twitter!

    My goals are to complete at least one business-building action each day, to work on photography and marketing by posting to my Yardia Instagram account daily, and to have at least two more shops carry my work by the end of the year. I’m excited about these intentions and am making good progress so far!

    My goal for this year is to “woman up” and take my jewelry to some local shops and to make that website happen (with a little help from my friends!). (i just posted it on my timeline so i won’t forget!)
