Today my crafty BFF Vicki O’Dell the Creative Goddess and I are heading to CHA Summer 2012- it’s the Craft and Hobby Association Conference in Rosemont, Chicago. It’s like the “Emmy’s” for crafters- it’s when craft companies come show off their new lines, crafty celebrities do demos, there are business seminars, and craft events.
For those of us who have been in the industry for a few years, it’s a chance to connect with other designers/reporters/friends and have a big ol’ crafty LOVE-IN! I literally spend the whole show running and hugging and smiling. (And feeling pretty exhausted at the end of the day.)
So anyhoo, this year there will be FOUR members of #TeamCTD representing- Haley Pierson-Cox of The Zen of Making, Sara Carns from Sara’s Never-Never La-La-Land, and the aforementioned Creative Goddess, Vicki!
I love going to CHA and sharing all of the new products. beautiful booth displays, craft celebrity demos, and fun crafty events. I hope that you’ll all join me on multiple platforms, as I share different things different places.
