I hope you are having a great time at Craftcation and that you'll hang out with us at the Saturday night dance party (we're sponsoring!) or stop by our room Friday night during Wanderings.
In case you don't know, I'm Sharon, one of the founders and the director of AHAS (short for Academy of Handmade Artists and Supporters). If you see me around Craftcation do say hello (I also have office hours!). Just know that my hair is now a lot shorter than this. ;) Or say feel free to chat up any of our members wearing their AHAS Member button.
OK, back to AHAS. We are a community for makers and businesses that support makers (like consultants, craft show organizers and like local shops). We provide community, business support and celebrate makers through an annual awards show (happening in a couple weeks in LA!). We have local chapters in LA, OC, San Francisco, San Diego, Seattle and coming soon Austin. But we also have an active community online.
If you're interested, membership opens on April 28. We'd love to have you! Get more details about pre-applying by clicking on the button below.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope we can keep in touch!
