This is it. Right after I finish this blog I will be getting in the car and traveling to Washington DC for Awesome Con this weekend. I have been talking about it for months now and I am so excited. I am going to be launching a brand new site that will be helping fellow crafters start or grow their own business! If you come by my Quiltoni table I can give you a preview and talk to you about all of the benefits. If you aren’t able to come to the convention then I will have all of the details with the website for you in next Wednesday’s blog.
Information for this weekend:
Where will you and Nicole be?
This is a great question since the convention is so huge this year. We won’t be in Artist alley actually. We have a large area with the vendors (even though we are still listed as artists). Here is the map for the convention: http://awesomecondc.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/20x24_ExpoHall_Map2.png. We are in booth 537 in the lower left area of the vendors.
Where is the charity auction you talked about?
The charity auction will take place only on Saturday. It is a one day silent auction from 10 am until 6pm where you will need to pick up and pay for your item at 6pm (the convention closes at 7pm). It will be in room 203B. I won’t be there during the auction (I will be at the Quiltoni booth) but will be there at 6pm to congratulate all of the winners. ALL winners will be able to write off their winning bids as a tax donation to Child’s Play.
What about that Charity Quilt?
The current bid for the charity quilt is at $275. That means the starting bid on Saturday will be $300.
What is this panel thing you are doing?
I am so glad you asked. I am very excited to be on a panel with some other fantastic crafty ladies to talk about how we started our businesses, the problems we have run into, and advice for other crafters. I will also be talking about the new site I mentioned above! I will be video taping the panel and posting it on my new site so if you aren’t able to go to the convention you can still see all of the awesomeness.
Are you going to tweet or post updates on Facebook this weekend?
I am definitely going to try. If you went to the convention last year you may have seen how crazy it was. If I see some awesomeness I have to share, then I will. I will also try to send you pictures of my booth and anyone cool I run into.
See you in DC!!
