Are you going to the CHA Summer 2012? The Craft & Hobby Association semi-annual trade show is coming up in mid July and I’ve noticed a few exhibitor updates …..
Nikki Sivils announced via her company’s blog today that she will neither be exhibiting nor designing collections for the Summer 2012 show. Due to health concerns with her father & brother, as well as a need to take better care of herself, Nikki Sivils is taking a breather for summer 2012. She does plan to exhibit at CHA Winter 2013. Nikki is also working on some plans for selling directly to the consumer. You can read Nikki’s post here.
Elle’s Studio announced via their blog today the exciting news that they ARE exhibiting at CHA Summer 2012 for the very first time!
In addition to their popular “tag” product lines, it sounds like they are also releasing an everyday line, Halloween and Christmas lines, and stamps. I know I look forward to seeing all of these which are sure to be created with the signature Elle’s Studio style we all love so much!
EK Success is not currently listed on the list of exhibitors for the show.
I have examined and scrutinized the exhibitor directory and trade show floor plan …. and I’m not seeing Provo Craft or Cricut mentioned anywhere! I have sent a few inquiries to contacts at Provo Craft to confirm whether they are planning to exhibit, but have not yet received any responses. I will update this post if/when I receive a response.
Speaking of Provo Craft, their former spokesperson, Jinger Adams, is launching her own product line! I look forward to seeing what Jinger has in store for us!
Lawn Fawn has exhibited at the past two CHA Winter shows, and this will be their very first CHA Summer show. Lawn Fawn says they have “lots of new stamps and two new paper lines” they will be introducing at the show.
Xyron opted not to exhibit at the CHA Winter 2012 show in January, which was a first in a very long time for them. They are also not currently on the exhibitors list for the CHA Summer 2012 show.
What other exhibitor updates am I missing?
