summit of awesome class of 2009

Met a bunch of great folks at last weekend's inaugural Summit of Awesome. Aptly named, the event brought over 200 smart, creative, generous and inspiring indie crafters from across the country together for three days of practical learning and networking.

What a great way to get introduced to the rockin' indie craft scene! I didn't know what to expect, but having my (handmade) socks knocked off was a nice outcome. The wealth of experience, biz savvy, and ingenuity gave me the jump-start I needed to give the indie craft scene a try.

Can't wait till next year's summit. In the meantime, I hope to reconnect with new friends throughout the year at local and regional craft shows.
