Star-Spotting At CHA-Winter 2009

Want to practice your newly learned papparazzi skills while you are in the land of stars – Los Angeles – for CHA? You may not even have to leave the show floor. According to CHA, a few stars will be visiting the show floor to promote their product lines:

  • Deborah Norville: The avid knitter, author, Emmy award-winning television journalist and host of Inside Edition, will be the 2009 Keynote presenter.  She’ll also be appearing at the Premier Yarns booth to introduce her brand new yarn line—Serenity, from the Deborah Norville Collection. Stop by to meet Deborah in person and see each of these four yarns (and receive free samples). She’ll be at booth #1619 on Sunday, January 25th from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm.
  • Vanna White: The co-host of Wheel of Fortune is an avid crocheter who has been Lion Brand Yarn Company’s spokesperson for 14 years. She’s collaborated with Lion Brand on several books, including Heartfelt Gifts to Knit and Crochet and Color it Beautiful Afghans, both inspired by her yarn with Lion Brand—Vanna’s Choice—a premium basic, easy-care yarn in colors all designed to mix and match. Vanna White will host the Lion Brand Yarn Fashion Shows held in the Lion Brand Yarn booth #1801 on Monday, January 26th at 12:00 pm, 1:00 pm and 2:00 pm.
  • Jane Seymour: The multiple Emmy and Golden Globe winner and recipient of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) has proven her talents on the Broadway stage, motion pictures and television. She’s also enjoyed great success as a painter in watercolors and oils, and as a designer of her Home Collection and her Open Hearts line of jewelry, both based on her art. Seymour was also selected as one of the official painters of the 2005 Torino Winter Olympics, the 2008 Beijing Olympics and the upcoming 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics. She’ll be making an appearance at the Tara Materials/Fredrix Artist Canvas booth #3529 on Monday, January 26th, from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm.
  • Paris Hilton:  The “hawt” heiress, tabloid staple and favorite target of talk-show comedians is coming to CHA to unveil Paris Hilton, the Creativity Collection™, a multi-faceted line of fashion crafting kits from some of the most popular craft segments including scrapbooking, jewelry making and fabric embellishment. Paris will be on hand for photos and signing autographs in the Wooky Entertainment booth #2500 on Sunday, January 25th, 2009 from 2:30 – 3:30 pm.

Sorry, ladies, apparently Patrick Dempsey doesn’t knit, crochet, or paint…I guess you’ll have to go to a racetrack if you want to see him.
