2012 Summit of Awesome: A Crafty Business Camp

Summit of Awesome 2012

If you’ve been following Crafting a Green World for a while, I’m sure you’ve seen us talk about The Summit of Awesome. My friend and site co-director Kelly Rand is one of the organizers, and I’ve spoken a few times on the conference’s Green Crafts panel.

This year, Hello Craft – the organization that plans the Summit of Awesome – released a brand new book on launching a crafty biz, so rather than a full-blown, multi-day event, this year’s Summit is a one day Business Camp workshop. If you run a crafty business or have been wanting to launch your hobby into a money-making venture, you should definitely check it out!

Hello Craft’s mission is to support the handmade community, and at each conference they have experts from the crafty community sharing their knowledge in talks, panels, and workshops. Here’s a video from the 2010 Summit in Portland, Oregon:

This year’s Summit of Awesome will be on Saturday, September 8 at Fab Lab DC (1418 North Capitol Street NW, Washington, DC 20002). Early bird registration is live now, so if you want to register at a discount, head on over to the Hello Craft website!
