We are at the 2014 CHA Winter Craft Show!

There is so much to see at the CHA show in Anaheim. Here's what our buying team is up to on their first day!

Before we do that, we would like to share a few words from on what CHA is all about: "Those of us who have been around the crafting block for a while know that the Craft & Hobby Association’s Winter Conference and Trade Show is full of magic and sparkles, but for the new readers among us, here’s a quick overview. CHA (pronounced C-H-A, each letter, not CHA, like cha-cha-cha) is like the Prom for craft manufacturers. Held twice a year, the Winter Show is the THE place to be for buyers for retail chains, independent craft stores, and media looking for the newest, coolest stuff in crafting. Manufacturers bring out their latest and greatest, the buyers order it, and in a few weeks’ (okay, sometimes months’) time, you, the consumer, can find it on our shelves". 

Let's start with Sonja, our Paper Crafts Manager, who is posing with none other than the famous Tim Holtz while she is shopping his new line.

Sonja LOVES Lawn Fawn stamps! She can hardly contain her excitement over the new release!

Mary Anne (from our Bonney Lake store) and Sonja are purchasing NEW Chalk Board Stickers at Me and My Big Ideas.

Sonja is having a FOXtastic time in the Adorn It booth. We can't wait until March when we get the Timberland Critter collection!
