Come join the excitement in at Camelback Inn in Scottsdale, Arizona - 4 days of learning, inspiration, education, networking, shopping, ideas, techniques, trends, friends, fun, food and more.  Our annual conference has become a favorite among studio owners and suppliers alike.  Please check the FAQ for questions before contacting us directly.  Many answers can be found there.

David Hoff classes From Vine to Wine and Fun, Funky & Fabulous are being cancelled due to the fact that the supplier he uses for the products he is teaching will not be able to provide this product in the future.  We are working on contacting everyone who has registered for his class with an option to change into another class and trying to add a technique class to our regular schedule.  We will update the website when we have more information.  Please refrain from contacting us while we sort out the details.  We appreciate your patience in this matter.  

Update:  If you have registered for this class you have been sent an email addressing this issue and instructing you on the class in which you have been switched to - Glitter Pop Pottery with Kathy Cano-Murillo from ILoveToCreate.  If you would like to switch into another class, you may do so by going to FAQ page and following the instructions on changing classes.  

Round tables as classes have been cancelled.  We are now hosting round tables during our lunch on Monday.
