Visiting the CHA MegaShow 2015
Last weekend was the Craft and Hobby Associations mega show in Anaheim, California. I’ve known about the show for years, but have never had the opportunity to go, I’ve always just looked at photos of friends who have gone and watched the online product releases of all of my favorite crafting brands.
This year, however, I finally got the chance to go! If you didn’t know, I am the Indie Crafts editor at Craft Gossip. That includes posting tutorials, featuring etsy shops and posting about the latest gossip in the crafting industry. I went to CHA as “press” for craft gossip, and got badges for Taylor and I so that we could get in.
I’ve been going to the Great American Scrapbook Convention for about 7 years, but it’s nothing like this. In size comparison, I was blown away by CHA. (although I was told it’s gotten much smaller over the years.)
I actually flew into phoenix the week before and then Taylor and I drove to Anaheim, CA. We had never been to L.A., so we were pretty excited! 🙂 sadly, we only had time to go to CHA for one day, so we missed a good number of the booths, but I made sure to hit the ones I REALLY wanted to see.
I will be sharing more of my favorite products from the show later this week, but for now, here are a few (okay, a lot) photos from my trip!
