CHA Summer Show – Day One, Set Up

Here we are at the Craft and Hobby Association’s Summer trade show!  Wow . . . we arrived at O’Hare, drove immediately to the hotel and then went to the Stephens Convention Center to find a ton of boxes like this:

Yes, it was very similar to the warehouse in Raiders of the Lost Arc. Big boxes everywhere!  But never fear, our trusty trade show team was already putting things together:

Here are Shauna and Kasey, setting up a mannequin that displays Plaid iron ons.

Chris comes out of the back room from setting up to give me a smile!

Our painted glass display is amazing! I’ll have to show you some detail shots tomorrow.

We make paint, but we also make jewelry! Here are Chain, Chain, Chain and Flavor, both available at JoAnns

Cathie and Steve will be demo-ing Hot Glue Gun Helpers, the coolest new tool for working with hot glue! Avoid burns . . . glue (and even paint) peel right off the mat and tools. More tomorrow with live pictures of the demonstration.

Plaid staff walks through the booth, making sure everything is in order. I can tell you that it looks fabulous so far, and it’s going to be exciting to walk in tomorrow morning and see it in action!  Don’t forget to come back tomorrow for the first day of the show. I’m going to have SO many pictures!  And a giveaway. . .
