Marimello is hittin' the road: Craft Con 2008

Big doing have been afoot all week at Marimello HQ. We've all been running around like chickens with our heads cut of in preparation for Craft Con 2008.

In case you're in the Bay area this weekend, come stop by and say hello!

Tomorrow, Friday April 4:
Things will be kicking off about 2:30 at La Boulange where we'll all meet up and head out for a tour of the city. We'll be checking out the Rag Co-Op, Rose and Raddish, Dark Coast Garden Corsets, Stitch Lounge, Rare Device, Pandora's Trunk, and Doe before we rest our tootsies with ReadyMade Magazine at Danny Coyle's.
Dinner at Cafe International is going to look reeeaaally good after that hike.

Saturday, April 5:
If we survive the tour, we're kicking crafty things off on Saturday at the Brava Theater. We've planned a whole load of sessions on Social Networking, Brick and Mortar shopkeeping, Crafting Green, Getting Published, Extreme Craft, Product Development, Altruism and Project Management. In addition, we all get to peep the new Handmade Nation trailer and have a little Q&A time with Faythe. We're really looking forward to the evening discussion on High vs. Low Crafting. Marimello got a sneak preview of the discussion from Garth Johnson of Extreme Craft and you can bet it's gonna be good. (You may remember the recent stirrings on this topic over here on imogene.org.)

In the evening, we're kicking up our heel at the Crafty Style Gala. Even if you didn't come for the sessions, you can still get into the Gala.

Sunday, April 6:
Marimello will surely be pooped at this point, but you can be sure our dragging feet will be headed back to the Brava for sessions on structuring a Craft Business, finding Sponsorship, getting Healthcare and peeping a case study in Craft Gym.

Stay tuned for more blogging from the actual event!
