Handmade Business Support
"Dear Handmade Life founders, Delilah Snell and Nicole Stevenson have a passion for empowering creatives with education and a forum to help people make a living doing what they love.
For nearly a decade, the aunt-and-niece team has been producing Patchwork Show: Modern Makers Festival, a biannual multi-city fair showcasing local emerging artists, crafters and designers alongside artisan food, DIY craft workshops, gourmet food trucks and indie music. In 2012 they founded Craftcation: Business + Makers Conference, featuring industry professionals leading attendees in hands-on food & craft workshops and lectures and panels on creative business. Delilah and Nicole also share DIY craft projects, tips on creative entrepreneurship, recipes, their adventures and inspiration to make every day awesome on their blog."

"The goal of the Arizona Small Business Association (ASBA) is to empower our business community to achieve their dreams. To accomplish this, we focus on four key fundamentals of business: effective small business education, dynamic professional connections, essential support resources, and public policy."
