By now, everyone has heard of Pinterest. The website we all flock to for inspiration in food, travel, fashion, crafting and more. We have also heard of Pinterest fails—those times you attempted to create that cute Mason jar whatnot and instead showered your carpet with glitter and glue (that you’re still trying to remove). Fortunately, Dallas will be hosting the Pinners Conference, a place where you can say “so long” to those Pinterest fail blues. At Pinners, moms will finally have time to get creative with more than 100 classes taught by experts and 300 businesses in DIY, crafts, cooking, photography and more.

Roxanne Bennett, the founder of Pinners Conference and mom of four, told us she can’t wait to get to Texas for the event. Originally from Idaho, Bennett and her husband moved to Utah where they came up with this idea, which started on the local level. She and her husband took notice of the Pinterest movement and were looking to inspire people—those who also wanted to save time and effort. “Moms are so busy,” Bennett says, “They have a million things going on and want to tap into their creativity but don’t know how, so we wanted to create a way for moms to step outside the box.”

The classes are geared toward beginners and only last for an hour apiece. Kids are welcome to get in on the action as well. For example, if you’re interested in cookie decorating but have never done more than watch a ton of Instagram videos of someone else doing it, there’s a class for you. If you want to take better pictures with your iPhone or DSLR (or want to learn what a DSLR is), there’s a class for you.

Walk in with whatever knowledge you have, or don’t have, and it seems you’ll have a new hobby by the end of the day—and hopefully able to avoid any glitter disasters in the future.
