Spring is in the air and you know what that means! It’s just a few weeks until the Chicago Craft Mafia’s next networking night, The Craft Racket, on Wednesday, April 20.

Step out for a fab evening of socializing, talking shop, and sharing a snack or two with your fellow crafters at Beans & Bagels on Montrose.

At this Craft Racket Rebeca Mojica, Chicago Craft Mafia member and founder of Blue Buddha Boutique, will be sharing with you her expertise in pricing one’s work.  There will also be a handout from members of the Chicago Craft Mafia with their own pointers.  Whether you are a new or experienced craft entrepreneur, this is sure to be an informative talk.

To make this event more meaningful, we are asking you to bring one of the products you make / sell, as well as the story behind why you created it.  Rebeca will lead an informative exercise that will assist you in determining whether your product is priced too low, too high or just right.

Hope to see you at the Racket!

Hello Chicago Crafters –

It’s nearly time for the Chicago Craft Mafia’s networking night, The Craft Racket, on Tuesday, January 18.

At this Craft Racket Katie Lime of Moira K. Lime Jewelry and Lindsay Obermeyer of LBO Studio / Enjolive will be sharing with you their trade show experiences.  Points covered will include how to prepare for your first wholesale show, why you even want to consider wholesale, and the current trade shows that are relevant for the handmade.
