Midwest Craft Caucus

So last weekend the Midwest Craft Caucus was held in Columbus. It was a " grassroots conference designed to foster the growth and sustainability of the handmade business community" and over one hundred handmade business owners will gathered to learn strategies for forming a sold business foundation, identifying target markets, and reaching those markets both online and in person."
The event was well organized and everyone seemed impressed listening to the speakers or speaking. I only volunteered and stopped by for the Craft Corner Deathmatch at Wild Goose Creative.
Teams of two was challenged to think and craft on the fly, with a random selection of craft supplies, creations judged by a team of esteemed local judges. Blueberry Pomegranate Colt 45 was also served up.
Here are a few sub-par photos of the event:
