Black Girls Craft takes Atlanta

1 October 2021

Cricut had the pleasure of sponsoring and attending the third annual Black Girls Craft Conference and Expo this weekend in Atlanta.

Hundreds of attendees came from all over the country (and even someone from the Bahamas!) to learn new skills, share their talents, and most importantly, connect in person and create new relationships at Black Girls Craft.

After a long break from in-person events, it was exciting to be back to face-to-face interactions — although we did keep it safe with plenty of masks and hand sanitizer on hand.

The Cricut booth stayed busy with our experts sharing information about the different machines. Attendees visitng the booth created custom tote bags using Infusible Ink.

Participants selected from dozens of pre-cut designs and patterns and then used the Cricut Easy Press 2 to make their own personalized masterpiece.

In addition to working the Cricut booth, we hosted several workshops and panels throughout Black Girls Craft to showcase some of our favorite creators and entrepreneurs.

Anastasia Jackson of Cookie’s Paper Petals packed the hall when she taught attendees how to make her signature paper flowers. She also was on-hand to answer questions about starting a small business, including things to watch out for and how to set yourself up for success.

Jamesha Bazemore and Letitia Owens shared their thoughts on how they make their passions pay off.

Our own Cricut team shared workshops on how to find the right Cricut machine for you and several how-to sessions for beginner and advanced Cricut users. 

And of course, no event is complete without some happy attendees winning some machines!

Making together in a hands-on environment was a welcome break from so many online experiences of the past 18 months, and the Cricut team enjoyed getting to laugh and make with so many creative women. We hope to meet more of you as we come back to events in 2022!
