With more than 100 classes to choose from, the second Pinners Conference & Expo in Atlanta will be offering the opportunity and knowledge to turn Pinterest fails into major wins. Plan for Friday and Saturday, April 27 and 28 at the Cobb Galleria Centre, and expect share to your love with more than 10,000 crafty (or would-be crafty) attendees who get the chance to learn, create, and connect with the most inspiring and creative people on the web, face-to-face.
The diverse range of classes will allow you to learn techniques and go home with new skills and finished projects, such as:
