Midwest Craft Caucus

There appears to be a movement! Attention all potential SpringBoard participants!

The Midwest Craft Caucus is a grassroots conference designed to foster the growth and sustainability of the handmade business community. One hundred handmade business owners will gather in Columbus, Ohio on June 4 & 5, 2011 to learn strategies for forming a sold business foundation, identifying target markets, and reaching those markets both online and in person.

The Craft Caucus will be presented at the Economic Community Development Institute (ECDI) and will feature over 25 panels, presentations and workshops on topics such as: Building a Brand, Utilizing Social Media, The Craft Fair Experience, Careers in Craft, Getting Published, Financial Planning, Working with Retailers, and much more.

With sessions lasting from 40 minutes to  70 minutes long, you can really pack your day. Both one day and two day passes are options at an affordable $50 and $75 respectively. Cincinnati’s own crafty superstar Grace Dobush will be leading two sessions. On June 4th, she will cover “Pricing Strategies for Crafters” and Sunday hosts “Get Published: How to Turn your Craft Experience into an Article, Blog or Book.”
