January is an exciting month in craft-land. The Craft and Hobby Association trade show is on for later this month in Anaheim, California, and it's as exciting as Christmas as all of us designers and retailers and manufacturers prepare to display our wares.
For the first time at the Winter Show, there will be a Craft Super Show(http://www.craftsupershow.com/). This show is open to the public. With your ticket purchase, you can see some of the newest crafts, meet well-known designers and do free make it-take its.
You can also buy tickets for workshops ranging from sewing to jewelry-making to scrapbooking and much, much more. I'll be helping out at a workshop showcasing the new Press and Close Fasteners from Velcro(R). My friend, Karen Wiant, has designed a super cute wreath using yo-yo's that you can use for all four seasons. It's got interchangable motifs that you fasten to a grapevine wreath.
I'll be highlighting each motif in the following days and talking more about the show. Here's the winter motif-an adorable little snowman!
I hope you'll check out the website and plan on being at the Craft Super Show.
