Craftcation Conference


I'm super excited to be returning for another year of Craftcation! If you've not heard me chat about it in the past, you can find out loads of information on my recap from last year's event, by clicking on the Craftcation tab on the right, or by visiting their site directly!

Craftcation is always a super fun time and this year I'm teaching more sewing! For those slightly more experienced sewers (like the fine group of ladies that learn with me year after year!) I'll be teaching my Marianne Dress pattern! We'll be doing the easiest version for maximum success, but everyone will be leaving with a finished dress!

My Marianne Dress class is kindly sponsored by the lovely people at Robert Kaufman, who offered up my favorite knit (Laguna Jersey) for the occasion, so everyone will get some yummy knit to work with! Thanks Robert Kaufman!

I'm also teaching a repeat of last year's successful zipper bag, and a revamp of my construction basics class I did at the first Craftcation many years ago.

The deadline to sign up at the early bird rate is this Sunday, so jump on it! There are loads of other awesome people teaching this year, so there's a lot to learn and good times to be had!
