Apparently there are still some tickets left for the Summit of Awesome.

About the Summit of Awesome:

The Summit of Awesome is an annual conference that brings together crafters and makers from across the U.S. to learn, grow, and be prosperous in today’s economy.
With a desire to help sustain the handmade movement and support independent crafters within the community,  Hello Craft welcomes independent business owners and makers to the Summit of Awesome each year.
