The Summit of Awesome

This just in...Hello Craft is putting together a Summit of Awesome May 1-May 3, 2009 in Washington, DC. The entire summit will take place in the independent shops, restaurants and bars in the MidCity area of D.C., along 14th and U Streets NW. This sounds like a great event as it's geared toward independent artists and crafters. The Summit of Awesome is 3 full days of seminars and hands-on workshops, which will provide business and technical education for those in the handmade arts community.

Some seminar topics include:
  • Business Identity and Branding
  • How to Green Your Craft
  • Small Business Basics
  • The Ins and Outs of Trade Shows
All great information for anyone, whether you've been doing this for awhile, or are just starting.

The Summit also includes the D.C. premiere showing of the Indie Craft Documentary film, Handmade Nation - it documents how the handmade community began and the shape its currently taking.

This sounds great. And I hear D.C. is beautiful that time of year.
