ALA CraftCon Community
The great thing about designing something like ALA CraftCon is that we can make it whatever we want it to be - to fit our needs. Here's a few suggestions for what we can include:
- Make and Take Tables
- Craft Swap (not sales, I don't want this to be about money - though if you have an craft business you would like to promote, I'm okay with that as long as ALA TPTB are)
- Panels - crafting as a way to teach establishing a small business, art education, etc.
- Meet Etsy Team Librarian
- Craft Showcase (this can be personal crafts or crafts from library programs with the appropriate permission)
Or, we could keep it very simple and have a low key drop in/meetup where people can whip out their craft and relax in a creative space free of conference obligations. (Downtime is essential during conference, as we all know.)
