Field Trip Friday: CHA Mega Show 2014

A couple weeks ago, Sis and I got to go to CHA Mega Show 2014, in Anaheim Ca.

I gotta say, It was a TON of fun! All craft genres were represented: beading, jewelry making, paper, printing (both 2-d and 3-d), stamping, needleworks, yarn crafts. Basically, you name it, they had a booth for it.

There was a lot of emphasis on mixed media: companies really trying to appeal to alternative or unconventional uses to their products. There were a lot of Make and Takes. Fantastic opportunity for all in the crafting world to see what is new and emerging.

It was a whirlwind; but here are some highlights.

1. The Lion Brand booth recreated the 7 Wonders of the World, with yarn!
