MEET YOUR HOST
Blogger & Owner Of Idealme.com & Creator Of The Crochet & Knit Bundles
I'm the owner of the blog idealme.com.

I've always had a passion for making, DIY and the fiber arts. In 2015 I started my blog idealme.com and within a year it was earning a full-time income as well as happily employing other makers.

Launching a business doesn't need to take forever or be a constant struggle. I decided to host this summit so I could share my own journey with you and bring you the best experts in the handmade business space!
