CHA Sneak Peek Highlights – Part 1

The sneak peeks are starting to trickle out (due to the way the holidays occur this year, don’t expect the avalanche until probably the week of January 6th). Despite the fact that relatively few are out yet, there are still some really great ones worth putting on your wish list already!

Amy Tangerine has knocked it out of the park – AGAIN – with her new “Plus One” collection. It coordinates with her previous collections, continuing the same palette and style while still somehow looking fresh. A plethora of small patterns makes this perhaps the most usable of all the Amy Tangerine collections to date.

Several items stand out from the collection. These flair badges are particularly appealing, very versatile and so workable for a huge amount of applications: Plus One Flair Continue Reading →

Events | CHA PaperArts 2014 Atlanta [Details]

The Craft & Hobby Association held two webinars last week to share the details of their planned PaperArts show in Atlanta in July with members. What follows are the details of the show as shared with members in the two webinars.

The show is designed to fill the void for the scrapbooking market that was left when the CHA Summer show was discontinued, to give them a marketplace and promotional opportunity for the all-important holiday products released in the second half of the calendar year.

CHA PaperArts 2014 is scheduled to take place from July 29th-31st, 2014 at the Hilton Atlanta in Atlanta, Georgia. July 29th is a workshop day, with the exhibit floor being open on the 30th and 31st.

Hilton Atlanta During the webinars, CHA staff members stressed that plans for the hotel-based show will be very different from the previous CHA convention center shows. They repeatedly described the event as “casual” and stressed that the event will be focused on transactional and product education events – a “buying and learning” show. There will be no business seminars – all education events will be hands-on workshops. Continue Reading →
