Dear Handmade Life founders, Delilah Snell and Nicole Stevenson have a passion for empowering creatives with education and a forum to help people make a living doing what they love.
For nearly a decade, the aunt-and-niece team has been producing Patchwork Show: Modern Makers Festival, a biannual multi-city fair showcasing local emerging artists, crafters and designers alongside artisan food, DIY craft workshops, gourmet food trucks and indie music. In 2012 they founded Craftcation: Business + Makers Conference, featuring industry professionals leading attendees in hands-on food & craft workshops and lectures and panels on creative business.
