Handcrafted Soap & Cosmetic Guild
I just returned from the Handcrafted Soap & Cosmetic Guild Annual Conference held in Raleigh, NC. This year we numbered over 300 attendees in this sold out event. As usual, we were spoiled with guest speakers, food, goodie bags, classes, vendors, prizes, good company and great entertainment.
If you love all things soap, this is the place to be! You will be in the company of others who share your passion for soapmaking and there is no shortage of someone to talk with or learn from. In addition to learning more about our craft, we are also given great information on how to run and manage our businesses.
The Guild is primarily run by volunteers who work year-round to support us. We are strongly represented in Washington, DC to ensure any new legislation in our industry does not negatively affect our small businesses. We also receive the benefit of affordable insurance and receive many discounts from major suppliers and for various services. Certification for Basic to Advanced Soapmaking can be obtained through the Guild and we have the advantage of advertising our business through the Handcrafted Soap & Cosmetic Guild website.
