CHA Show Recap

The Craft & Hobby Association (CHA) Summer Show last week in Rosemont, Illinois, was THE place to be for the craft and hobby industry!

We launched a new catalog supplement at the show. New products include Artistic Wire Jump Rings for Chain Maille and new square, half-round, fancy round and fancy square German Style Wire.

Beadalon Design Team Members Katie Hacker and Margot Potter appeared in the booth. Katie demonstrated new ideas for using her co-branded line of Katiedids™ Creative Components and Margot led make-it-take-its from her new book, Bead Chic

Margot showed people how easy it is to transform copper Artistic Wire into chic hoop earrings.

Beadalon product manager Wyatt White demonstrated wire wrapping techniques with Artistic Wire and new half-round, square and fancy German Style plated wire. 

 Here are a few of Wyatt's gorgeous creations!

Sales executive Michael Hogan introduced new products, made connections and wrote orders at the show. Our planogram displays made it easy for customers to see how Beadalon products would look in their stores.
