DATE AND TIME

Tuesday, June 4, 2019
8pm ET – 9pm ET

Our Indies are nationwide, but thanks to the power of the Internet (and Zoom!), we can get to know one another in person!

Welcome to the announcement for our first Member Mixer, designed especially to welcome our newest members, and to celebrate and shine a spotlight on our members who are blazing a trail!

If you are new to IBN, this is your chance to introduce yourself, share your products, and meet some new friends. You’ll also get a quick tour of IBN’s great member benefits.

If you have been a member for a while, the love affair continues! We’ll get to know each other better and you’ll have an opportunity to share your expertise and successes as we make note of your news and share it via IBN’s large social media network after our event.

• Get to know your fellow Indies
• Explore new collaborations
• Chat about whatever hot topics are on your mind
• Have some major fun celebrating life and business together

The best part is you can join us from the comfort of your home or office. And I seriously don’t care if you’re in your pajamas, and I won’t ask what you are drinking (but you can share …)

This event is open exclusively to members of the Indie Business Network!

Here is how to join us!

Date: Tuesday, June 4, 2019
Time: 8pm ET to 9pm ET

Details to join will be available to members only.

See you at our first Member Mixer!

Revolution Craft Show @ Revolution Tap Room

The Revolution Craft Show exists to provide a welcoming and affordable event for new and seasoned artists. Each show is carefully curated to provide a wide variety of unique, high quality and handmade work. We aim to partner with Chicago venues that provide a fun atmosphere for attendees to shop and linger. Whenever possible we coordinate with a variety of local food trucks to complement the venue’s beer selection.

The results of our efforts: a growing group of artists outfitted with a thicker skin, deeper confidence in themselves and their community, and the courage to navigate the field of art and craft.

If you are a Maker and wish to apply to be a part of the show, click here.
