CHA, the Craft & Hobby Show 2014, what a great show! Here I am with one of the nicest guys in the business Mark Montano of Make Your Mark. Super talented and super nice. Here we are hanging out at the Prime Publishing (Favecrafts)blogger event, what a great evening, food fabulous, lots of swag and connections. The craft industry has the best people, super talented and super nice! Thank you Prime Publishing!

Over at my favorite hangout, the Kunin booth we were crowning royalty. I built a throne from pink polka dot felt and the attendees made fun felt crowns.

In the land of Palm trees I built a Palm tree of my own in the Designer Showcase with some bright and lively prints from Kunin. Designer friend Jonathon Fong "Style with a Smile" even dressed to match my display! :)

Since I survived the CHA flu bug, here I am with Suvivor Superstar Rupert. Tiedyed up a storm all day without gloves, hands a very interesting color. We caught up at the I Love to Create pampering party.

There is so much more, catch up with more details on my blog over at What a wonderful company, they were the best to work with at the show! I had a great time in the booth. Thank you to all who made the show such a great success! Debra

Banners of Hope


It is the first Monday of the month, the Designer Connection Blog Hop is on, our diversely talented group of designers is showcasing this month's theme with favorite techniques, tools or products. We are all also scurrying the last few days before the trip to the CHA, Craft and Hobby trade show in Anaheim.  I am excited to be involved in several events and working with the Kunin Group Felt Fabric and Crafts at Booth 501. I write their new blog and enjoy sharing my love of their product.

The seasonal felt embossed with several designs is fun, festive and colorful! One of my favorites is the snowflake design. Much warmer to handle than the real stuff that is piled five feet high outside! An easy technique to create dimension is to cut out individual icons from the felt and sew to the matching icons on project. Varying dimension can be achieved by layering two, three or even more icons on top of each other. Beacon's Fabri-tac is an excellent glue for felt. Finish off with a colorful button. I am a big fan of  the bright collection from Laura Kelly.

I used this easy technique in a project dear to my heart, the Banners of Hope CHA Designer project. Led by the new Fabric Arts Council of CHA individual banners with messages of Hope are being created in every medium. In my post on Tuesday over on the Kunin Blog I give all details. Create & enjoy!
