After taking so many pictures at the Craft & Hobby Association (CHA) Mega Show, I decided to split my recap into two posts. A few days ago I shared a post about The People, and today’s installment is about The Show Floor.
These were two of the first booths I passed….. color swatches and duct tape couture.
The Spellbinders booth was one of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. Every side had a different ‘feel’ to it, depending on which products were displayed. The intricacy of their dies really captivated me. Love that layout by Beck Beattie!
DecoArt’s Media line really rocked me… I am looking forward to creating with these products. This was the display board behind Andy Skinner’s demo table.
This was one of the beauties in the Graphic 45 booth.
For those who knit… and even those like me who don’t…. the Yarnia display was captivating.
This year I invested in a display spot in the Designers’ Showcase. There were about two dozen designers with stands in this area, and it was a great way to show our work and look for more.
Also on the show floor, MSNBC set up shop and taped interviews with exhibitors and attendees who had questions/suggestions regarding small business issues. We had to fill out an application ahead of time and I was excited to find I had a slot.
All thoughts went straight out of my head once the lights and cameras came on, but the interviewer was wonderful and got me ‘grounded’ very quickly. If my segment airs, it will be part of a show called Your Business that airs at 7:30am Eastern time on MSNBC.
With that, my CHA recap is complete. Now I need to get ready for the classes I’m teaching February 6-8th at Right at Home Scrapbooking in North Attleboro, MA…. maybe I’ll see you there? Please call the store at (508) 695-9290 to register.
