It's ALL About the Bubbles!!!

Yes it's that time again to start thinking about the annual Ohio Soapers conference, because WE have been!!!  Lynne, Robin and I have been working for the past year to make this gathering one to be remembered! Many things will have changed. Remember, change is good. That is how we grow and learn.  The conference will be held April 16, 2016 from 9-4:30.

The theme of the conference is 'It's ALL About the Bubbles'!  You will see that theme used all day. So keep it in mind when thinking about the bar soap swap and EVEN what you will wear!  There will be prizes and games all day!  We have AMAZING speakers lined up. The food is already ordered and promises to be delicious. We have ordered audio/visual equipment to insure everyone can hear and see. THIS year, we are excited to announce that there  will be a separate drawing for a GRAND PRIZE! And everyone can earn extra ticket just by 'joining' the Facebook page, Ohio Soapers 2016 Conference. AND we offer occasional extra ways to earn tickets! But don't worry, if you don't want to join FB, everyone will get a ticket with registration.

So plan your trip to Springfield, Ohio, April 16, to the beautiful campus of Clark State Community College. There are a number of CLOSE hotels, it is just off I70, and there is plenty of parking!

Registration begins soon, so watch for that announcement!  Questions or concerns? email us at
