CHA has announced that the keynote speaker for the CHA-Winter 2009 show in Anaheim, CA will be celebrity crafter Deborah Norville. Formerly the host of the Today Show, Norville is currently the host of Inside Edition.
As featured speaker, Deborah will share her lifelong love and passion for knitting and the needle arts. Through her keynote presentation, Turn Your Passion Into Profit! – Using the Power of Positive Thinking to Reach Your Goals, she’ll share stories of a family history rich in crafting, the bonds created, and the importance in passing these onto the next generation…not just as a hobby, but as family tradition. Her love of crafting has inspired her to launch a new knitting yarn brand, the Deborah Norville Collection.
Norville’s keynote will take place on Sunday, January 25, 2009 from 6:30 – 7:30 pm in the Anaheim Convention Center Ballroom A. Advance tickets are $30 for CHA members and $60 for non-members. Ticket price includes entrance to the keynote reception which takes place from 5:30 – 6:30 pm. Norville will also be signing books at the Barnes & Noble bookstore in the Convention Center Main Lobby following the keynote from 7:30 – 8:30 pm.
Ticket registration for this event and the rest of the CHA-Winter 2009 education program is scheduled to open on or about November 10, 2008 on the CHA website.
