Craftcation conference to return to Ventura
Co organizer Nicole Stevenson said the expanded food workshops were planned last year because of popular request but that the implementation of the Homemade Food Act in California has made such classes even more popular. The law, which took effect Jan. 1, will allow home based kitchens to produce small batches of prepared food, except dairy or meat, to sell to stores, restaurants and consumers.
Stevenson said last year's conference in Ventura was so fun that there was no question of holding it there again. She said conference attendees will enjoy meals and special events, including a barbecue at the Ventura County Fairgrounds.

Stenslie said those numbers, along with the fact that small businesses tend to recover faster from economic downturns, mean such companies are essential to the economic success of the area.

While technology has helped people set up home based businesses and connect with others with the same interests, events like Craftcation let them meet face to face and create the relationships that can make or break a small business, Stevenson said.
Organizers of last year's inaugural Craftcation conference will bring it back to Ventura, expanding the classes and seminars and adding more features this year.
"We actually decided to expand last year, but the new law is bringing more attention to home based food business expansion. We saw a need for it last year because the food specific food classes had such a great response. I think with the artisan food movement growing it made sense for us," Stevenson said.
The purpose of the conference is to help all craft workers learn more about creating a small enterprise. "There is a resurgence of people doing it themselves and people starting their own small businesses," Stevenson Nike Air Max Blue And White Pattern said.
"We see a lot of opportunity in nurturing small businesses and helping people. We have about 2,000 home based businesses registered to operate in Ventura," Okamura said. "They have come up with pretty innovative products. We see a lot of potential small businesses growing to medium sized and large businesses. So we're trying to be very supportive of people who are trying to expand."
Lilly Okamura, senior city planner, said Ventura welcomes the boom in small, home based businesses.
Craftcation is a four day independent business and do it yourself conference. The event, which will run March 21 24 at the Crowne Plaza Ventura Beach Hotel, will have more than 50 panel discussions, lectures and workshops on art, crafts and food centered small businesses.
