Dremel at Haven Conference 2018, A Look Back

The best advice we heard came from Yvonne Pratt from Stone Gable Blog.  “Haven is like a fire hose and you need to put your face in front of it to drink in as much as you can.”  In July, the team traveled to Charleston for the Haven Conference, a DIY and Decorating conference where we had the opportunity to connect with a fun and enthusiastic group of passionate makers and bloggers.   


To stand out and make this our biggest presence yet, we partnered with Gorilla Glue and got crafty with the Haven Mavens to do a few projects throughout the weekend. The tool of choice to take these crafts to the next level, was the new Dremel 2050 Stylo+!  .


We had so much fun meeting the Mavens & hearing your great feedback on the Stylo+. We’re providing all the Haven attendees (and your followers) an exclusive discount for the Stylo+ to get you making!  Use coupon code “10HAVENSTYLO” to get $10 off the new Dremel Stylo+ when you shop on This offer expires on September 30 so be sure to share out this exclusive deal with your friends & followers and look like a hero doing so!

A Look Back at the Hype at Haven

 Check out our favorite moments from the weekend and learn how you can recreate the Kitchen Sign project from home as featured in our hands-on-demo session.

Day One

We jumped into Haven with a wide array of activities for every type of crafter. Our Make and Take featured glass etching with the new Stylo+ engraving tool in combination with making cork succulent magnets with Gorilla’s hot glue. Mavens also got an intimate walkthrough of the new Dremel Versa Power Cleaner and DigiLab Laser Cutter.

Day Two

As if the first day was not action packed enough, we held a Hands-On Session with Jenn Largesse from Build Basic who led the Kitschy Kitchen Sign project. Each participant could choose from a laser engraved stencil featuring a fun kitchen pun or a blank MDF template for those who wanted to get extra crafty. From there participants engraved & customized their designs using the Dremel Stylo+. Something that picture perfect needs to be framed right? Afterwards everyone grabbed a Dremel Saw Max to cut a barn wood frame and glue together using Gorilla Glue’s new Dual Temp Mini Glue Gun
