A few participating designers include: Xenia Taler,
Mateo Ilasco, Sharon Spain, and Dermond Peterson.

Details: Saturday, April 12, 2008 in San Francisco at the Fort Mason Center, Bldg. A Conference Center from 10:30AM - 3PM. Details here.

{psst} Meg was spotlighted in yesterday's Wall Street Journal in the article Crafty Hobbyists Create New Careers Using the Web. It's a quick bite featuring 4 basics that every craftster should know before setting up shop: sticking to your vision, locating your core audience, using alternative publicity (like blogs!), and charging a fair price. You may want to check that out. Article written by WSJ writer Amy Palanjian.

Thanks Meg for writing in, have a fun weekend and lots of success to you!
