On today’s episode of the Craft Industry Alliance podcast we're talking about creative conferences with my guests Grace Dobush, an organizer of Midwest Craft Con, and Joy Uyeno, an organizer of The Hello Sessions.
Grace is a freelance journalist and the author of the Crafty Superstar business guides. She's also the co-organizer of Crafty Supermarket, an indie show that is celebrating its sixth birthday in Cincinnati on November 28, 2015. Midwest Craft Con is a retreat for mid-career makers coming in February 2016.
Joy Uyeno authors the blog Frock Files and is the social media manager at Bentley University. She lives in Massachusetts with her husband their corgi, Kona. The Hello Sessions is a workshop based conference for lifestyle bloggers and businesses that took place for the first time in October 2015 in Portland, Oregon.
Please note that this show used to be called the While She Naps podcast. The name has changed, but the content and host have stayed the same.
