I wanted to share some really awesome inspiration from last week’s CHA Trade Show with you! CHA is an acronym for the Craft and Hobby Association, a trade association consisting of thousands of companies engaged in the design, manufacture, distribution and retail sales of hobby products in the US. Each year CHA hosts 2 conferences, and we just returned from the Winter Conference, held in Los Angeles.
The DMC booth featured mixed media vignettes created by Barbara Willis, Lisa Kettell, Susan Elliot, Anne Burg and Patti Culea (meet the artists) using assorted DMC Threads including Color Infusions threads and Memory Thread.
Lisa has shared her instructions for creating a Floss Party Fairy Project Sheet so you can create a floss fairy (or two) too!
The fairy uses Memory Thread, DMC Embroidery Floss, DMC Light Effects Metallic Patti Thread and DMC Tapestry wool, and is stitched on 14-count Aida Fabric. The figure uses a clay pixie doll head (available from Lisa), beads, wire, felt and paint as well as a few other basic supplies.
The box from Susan Elliot (near left) contained the Alice in Wonderland block I showed you a while back. It’s such a wonderful way to finish – and protect – the block!
