Working Holiday: Craftcation

First came the stay-cation, now behold Craftcation, a four-day getaway designed to inspire, support and educate creative, passionate souls in the process of pursuing their entrepreneureal dreams.

Craftcation, now in its fourth year, is  a spin off of the wildly successful Patchwork Show festivals created by artistic muses on a mission Delilah Snell and Nicole Stevenson. "I’ve always wanted to inspire fellow business people to take that chance and just do it!" says Snell.

Creative entrepreneurs themselves, Snell and Stevenson have designed a conference that blends hands-on craft worshops with bottom line business sessions and networking opportunities. This spring's list of presenters include: Kari Chapin, best selling author of Grow Your Handmade Business and The Handmade Marketplace; Kaari Meng, former jewelry designer for Anthropologie and owner of French General an ultra cool vintage craft boutique and workshop in L.A.; Nancy Soriano, the former editor in chief of Country Living Magazine and co-founder of the Creative Connection Event; Kim Werker, the author of Make It Mighty Ugly, a handbook for banishing creative demons by confronting them head on; along with a host of highly talented bloggers, artists, retailers, financial experts, educators, marketing pros and many more.
