I recently returned from CHA, the International Craft and Hobby trade show in Anaheim, and as always I’m filled to the brim with new ideas and energy!
I have exhibited at the show in the past with my companies Indygo Junction/The Vintage Workshop and now attend this show regularly for networking, and to see all the latest products on the market. This year, the show was especially inspirational, as I connected with so many wonderfully talented women whom I hadn’t met before. I also got a chance to catch up with old friends and learn about their recent creative endeavors. One highlight was receiving books from my friends, Marie LeBaron, Jenny Doh, and Jeannine Stein. Take a look at each of these titles and be inspired….Creative Pilgrimage, Makes and Takes for Kids, and Adventures in Bookbinding
As for a fashion fix, the Lion Brand Yarn show is always special event! This year’s show featured looks from some of the top art and design schools from around the world, including, “California College of Art, Parsons School of Design, FIT and Rhode Island School of Design in the U.S; Shenkar College of Engineering and Design in Israel; Aalto University in Finland; Parsons Paris in France; Buckinghamshire New University and Royal College of Art in the United Kingdom; and Kyoto University of Art and Design and Bunk Fashion College in Japan.”(from PRweb) I put up some of my shots from the cat walk in my Inspiration Gallery…The Granny Square style was my favorite!!!
