As a maker, you spend a great deal of time alone in the studio. Every once in a while, it's essential to get out and mix it up with other creatives and makers. Luckily the chance to do just that is right around the corner, and even more exciting is the fact that it's happening right here in BALTIMORE!!!!!
The Summit of Awesome is put on by Hello Craft and is an amazing opportunity to network and soak up lots of industry know-how. In Hello Craft's words, "The Summit of Awesome is an annual conference that brings together crafters and makers from across the U.S. to learn, grow, and be prosperous in today’s economy. With a desire to help sustain the handmade movement and support independent crafters within the community, Hello Craft welcomes independent business owners and makers to the 2011 Summit of Awesome."
The line up of speakers is beyond impressive. It Includes Jay McCarroll of Project Runway fame, Elijah + Rhonda Wyman, the designers behind the amazing jewelry and homegoods line Figs and Ginger, as well as the craft superstar duo Shauna and Stephen of Somethings Hiding in Here, local craft icons Biggs & Featherbelle, and many, many more. Trust me, this is a do not miss event!
