Midwest Craft Con 2023

March 31

Midwest Craft Con

The Midwest Craft Con is a three-day retreat for crafters, makers and creative business owners.

The conference will include inspirational keynote addresses, thought-provoking panel discussions, hands-on workshops and business-focused breakout sessions from experts from Ohio, the Midwest and beyond. But it won’t be all work: You’ll make new friends at our evening mixers, explore our trade show and network with makers — it’ll be a weekend-long retreat with your best craft buddies. We hope you can join us!

Our keynote speakers for 2023 is crochet and fiber artist, Toni Lispey of TL Yarn Crafts.

Breakout sessions will include expert advice on everything you need to know about running your small business, from marketing and social media to panel conversations to DIY workshops.

New to the conference is a one day marketplace, Craftin’ Outlaws.
