Welcome to the 14th Annual Conference

It has been over a year since the last Handcrafted Soapmakers Guild Conference and I am going through withdrawal.  Why, because each year I attend the Handcrafted Soapmakers Guild Conference it feels like a big family reunion.  Most faces are familiar but there are some new ones each year to meet and greet.

HSMG Board Member Maria Gelnett, my roomie Holly Port of Lotion Bar Cafe, Ground Crew Camryn O'Donnell and Asst. to Conference Chair Stephanie Craig.

As soon as I walked off the elevator I was cheerfully greeted with the sounds of hearing my name being shouted out.  The registration table was full of familiar faces from having volunteered in past conferences as well as from the CNY Soapmakers Gathering I am apart of.

In the picture to the left, my roomie Holly Port thinks she has the winning raffle tickets but she is sadly mistaken as I have purchased the winning tickets. It is this great energy and excitement that exudes this conference: GREAT PEOPLE and a GREAT TIME!

For up to date information regarding this years soap conference I will be using the official conference hashtag #soapconf11.  Keep an eye out on Twitter and Facebook for updates throughout the upcoming days.

If you are here for the soap conference share what you love about attending the conference and if this is your first time share why you decided to give it a try.
