Did you know we’ve rounded up some major businesses as our Haven Conference sponsors?  Yep!  Those include Home Depot, Minwax and Rust-Oleum to name just a few!

We’ve provided a full list of workshops as well.  Attendees will get a chance to learn basic carpentry from Ana White in the ‘Just Build It’ workshop and meet Rashon Carroway (aka Mr. Goodwill Hunting) who will be coaching the ‘Thrifty Shopping’ workshop. 

There will be other sessions taught by many of the ladies behind HAVEN, I’m signed up to teach at least one too.  For all of you interested in bettering your DIY skills and/or mixing and mingling with those in the DIY & Home Decorating niche, now’s your chance to snag a ticket!

But your ticket to Haven here.
