  • Your registration includes: All events and activities Wednesday through Sunday including workshops, lectures, panels, special events and workshops. Though the conference technically starts on Thursday, we have pre-conference workshops and gatherings starting in the afternoon on Wednesday.
  • Most hands-on workshops have limited space. We send out an email to all registered attendees with an access code to register for hands-on workshops about six weeks before the conference. Because the hands-on workshops have limited space, we encourage you to register for them as soon as you get the email. Some of the hands-on workshops or special events like tours may have an additional supply fee. The business workshops, lectures and panels are walk-in for all Craftcation attendees.
  • Craftcation Conference does not accept cancellations or refunds. If you find out you can’t make it, try posting on our Facebook page to find a buyer. Once you sell your ticket, please email us at with the name and email address of the person who bought it.
