Delilah Snell and Nicole Stevenson, the producers of the local goods marketplace known as the Patchwork Show, are launching a new endeavor called the Craftication Conference. Their goal is to bring together like-minded indie business owners, helping them bring their creative ideas into fruition.

The activities at Craftcation will be vast, with talks on everything from how to start a crafty business, maximizing social media, website design, and more. They're also hosting heaps of food-oriented DIY workshops. There will be sessions on cheese making, terrariums and edible gardens, artisan ice cream making, and more.

Other food-focussed highlights include a coffee roasting workshop, a session involving beer tasting and crocheting (that could get dangerous), Servsafe certification classes (which are required for anyone who's handling food), kombucha making, and a panel with Evan Kleiman, Laura Avery, and Susie Wyshack that will discuss food trends.

There'll also be daily BBQ and cocktail socials and and a tour of Ventura's food scene.
