Handcrafted Soapmakers Guild Conference Day 2
Another busy day started off with the HSMG Annual Meeting. Leigh O'Donnell will be HSMG's new President! Go to http://www.soapguild.org/index.php if you would like more details. I attended the fantastic seminar by Linda Stevens on Setting Up Shop. Among other things, She shared details of making 230 pound batches of soap! Kelly Bloom discussed trademarking and Susan Ryhanen encouraged us all to make the leap from Retail to Wholesale. There was an Experts Panel question & answer period over lunch. Jamila White gave us all an E-Commerce Reality Check. Dead Sea Bulk Materials sponsored a Totally Pamper Me Spa Night, complete with mud & certificates.
