Last month we launched our Portland Chapter! We are so excited to have two amazing women at the helm and I'd love for you to meet one of them-- Ullika or Ulli as we sometimes call her. :) If you are interested in starting a chapter near you, let us know! You can get the details here.
While Academy of Handmade has six local chapters, we also work to develop a supportive and robust online community with the help of our "online chapter" leaders. They create programming and facilitate our weekly online chats. I am excited to introduce our first Canadian to be part of AHAS leadership! Please say hello and meet Adrienne. :)
Academy of Handmade exists because we have community leaders that are willing to help, guide and support their fellow members. One very important leadership role is our Online Chapter Leader. Which, unlike local chapters, everyone in AHAS is in the Online Chapter! :) Our new leader TeDi is a great example of someone who gives back to this community generously. Read on to learn more about her!
