CHA Promoting “Craft Till You Drop” Weekend

CHA is promoting an in-store event weekend for its retailers in conjunction with its Craft Supershow that will be taking place in Orlando from July 31st-August 1st.

“Craft Till You Drop” weekend will also take place the weekend of July 31st-August 2nd. The event will be publicized nationally by the Craft & Hobby Association, which is providing a turnkey package of promotional materials for the event to its retailer members. Several manufacturers, including scrapbook company Glitz Design, have donated make-n-take sheets for use in the promotion.

Reader Survey: I’m curious to hear from my retailer readers about their thoughts on a couple of things related to this planned CHA promotion. Do you think this is an attempt by CHA to pay some attention to retailers outside of Florida who may have felt neglected by their Supershow promotion? And, if you are planning to attend the trade show in Orlando, is it going to be difficult for you to pull off an in-store event that same weekend?


Fiskars To Celebrate Birthday With Fiskateers At Epcot

If you are a Fiskateer, and are going to CHA or live near the Orlando area, you won’t want to miss this special event! Fiskars is hosting an event for Fiskateers at Epcot in honor of the company’s 360th birthday.

The event will take place at Epcot from 1pm-9:30pm on Monday, July 27th. The planned festivities include a VIP meeting room with special “Disney magic”, food, special guests, and fireworks. There will be cropping, dinner, dessert, and then the Epcot fireworks to finish off the evening.

VIP experiences at Epcot typically run $500/person according to Fiskars, but they are only asking the Fiskateers to pay $30/person for their tickets. Fiskars will pay the rest of the bill for the event.
