Handmade Business Bloom Week Returns!

Want to see your handmade business grow and bloom this season? The 2nd Annual Handmade Business Bloom Week offers eight workshops for local creative entrepreneurs. This year we're excited to feature guest instructor Tara Swiger who will be teaching her popular online class, Finding Your Customer Path in person to a limited number of students. Swiger is the author of Market Yourself, a system for marketing your small business, and is the leader of an online community of creatives actively growing their independent businesses. This special workshop will be held on Sunday, May 31st from 2-5pm and online registration is available here.

Bloom Week instructors include local craft leaders AmyD (madebyamyd.com), Megan Green (stinkybombsoap.com, craftinoutlaws.com), Amy Turn Sharp (littlealouette.com, amyturnsharp.com) and Wholly Craft owner Olivera Bratich. Classes are designed to help both emerging and established businesses maximize their customer reach and relationships, improve their operations, and increase sales. Topics include:
