CRAFTY HAPPENING: fall 2007 creativ festival

Creativ Festival Fall 07

Sorry to be so late in posting about this...I seem to have a blind spot memory issue with this show (though I mean to go every year)! Here's a little blurb from the Creativ folks to give you a taste of what to expect:

From sewing, beading, quilting and scrap-booking to knitting, stitching and more, the
Creativ Festival is the ultimate interactive experience. Whether you're experienced or never crafted before, discover, learn, try and buy all you need to craft-it yourself. From Swarovski® jewelry making to embellishing, scrapbooking to do-it-yourself decorating, you can learn to knit, test drive the latest sewing and embroidery machines, or take a quilting lesson. There's hundreds of exhibits, demos, activities and more.

See the NEW green fibre and contemporary art quilt exhibits.
Explore the knitters market, bead boutique and fashion district.
Pick up needlework and cardmaking tips from industry experts.
Buy all the supplies you need for your next project.
Pick up tips from do-it-yourself celebs & industry experts.

For the full low down, see the
Show Guide PDF.

5 days of classes starts this Wednesday October 24th. See the schedule
Also, there are a number of crafty presentations. Details

And don't forget...admission is free to those who bring newly knit (hand-knit) sweater or blanket for donation to the
Warm Hands Network (who will be at booth #909). See TCA post about this project here.
