The Craft SuperShow is taking place on January 22-23 in Anaheim, CA. Craftster will be there and YOU should be too!

What is the Craft SuperShow? It’s a ginormous show which is put on by the Craft & Hobby Association (CHA).

At the show you’ll find workshops, product demos, free “make and takes”, amazing craft products you can buy, craft celebrity appearances and so much more!

The admission is just $20 for a two-day pass and $15 for a one-day pass. We have a discount code for Craftster readers for $5 off the two-day pass and $3 off the one-day pass! You can buy your tickets here and enter the promo code CRAFT32.

Have you ever been to a car show, boat show, home show, etc? Have you ever wished there was something like that just for crafts? Well this is even better than that! Check out these photos from the last event. (A huge thank you to Christine from the wonderful paper crafting site scraptime.ca for letting us use these photos she took.)

Here are just a few of the celebrities I’m excited to meet at the show! Vickie Howell — author, knitter, and host of HGTV’s Knitty Gritty and DIY’s Stylelicious. Kathy Cano-Murillo — the one and only Chicano Pop Artist extraordinaire behind the Crafty Chica empire. And holy moly — Aleene Jackson! Ya know the hundreds of bottles of Aleene’s Tacky Glue you’ve been through over the years? Yes, that Aleene Jackson. She is a pioneer of the crafting world since the 1960’s and I’m a huge fan!

And, last but not least, Craftster will have a booth at the event! We’ll be hanging out, meeting people, and doing free “make and takes” of our own! We are really excited to meet Craftster members in person and lots of new people too.

So, have we convinced you yet to come to the show? We hope so! Should we mention that even if you don’t live in Southern California, this is a great excuse to take a little trip to Anaheim? (Heck, bring the family and squeeze in a visit to that little known amusement park right around the corner! ;-))

We hope to see you at the Craft SuperShow!

    Hey Craftster, Painter’s Pyramid will be at the CHA show in January too! We’ll be featuring our newest Arts & Crafts product the Craft-N-Spin. This unique and versatile product allows crafters to securely elevate and effortlessly rotate their crafts projects without touching wet surfaces or waiting for coats to dry- ensuring better results in less time with less energy. Stop by our booth, # 2733, and meet Craft-N-Spin inventor Mike Bucci and see the Craft-N-Spin in action. Mike is a woodworking and crafts enthusiast who invented his first product, the Painter’s Pyramid, 3 years ago while looking for a way to elevate his own woodworking projects. It’s now used by over four million crafters worldwide and is one of the main components of the Craft-N-Spin. For more information, please visit http://www.Craft-N-Spin.com. Thanks for your time and hope to see you at CHA!

    What a neat product, Craft-N-Spin people! Thanks for sharing. It’ll be interesting to see it in person at the event.

  3. Pam says:

    Wow! It sounds sooo cool plus warm weather during January-how can you resist?

  4. lapoli says:

    Wow! This sounds like a ton of fun! Finally a giant show all about crafting! I can’t wait to meet a ton of fellow craftsters there.

    Wow I totally wish I could make it to this! Unfortunately I live just a little too far away. Why can’t these things happen in Toronto or Buffalo? I can’t say I’ve seen a big event like this in the central-eastern area of the continent ever!

  6. SevsOnlyGirl says:

    This sounds fantastic!! I am a huge fan of Aleene’s and the Crafty Chica, I wish I could be there too. 🙂

  7. rackycoo says:

    OMG, if there were any way I could fly all the way across the country to be there, I would have that two day pass in my grubby little hand even as we speak! This show looks fantastic! I wonder if there’s any way Santa thinks I was good enough this year to deserve a ticket in my stocking? Hmmm….

    Oooh, that looks like so much fun! The cool stuff always happens on the coast! I would love to go, and I would if it were in Chicago or Detroit or someplace closer.

    I can’t wait to see pics from everybody that goes!!

  11. What a great lineup, I look forward to visiting your booth.

    I would love to meet Vickie Howell in person!!! Looks like a very fun event, and it is great that people can get a discount! Glad to see such support for the crafting world!
    I am so jealous of all our West Coast craftsters able to attend! Can I hide in a suitcase anybody?

  13. alteredmommy says:

    that totally looks like a crafter’s dream come true!! I’ll be having a word with Santa for some plane tickets in my stocking!

  14. TaraCraft says:

    Hey superhooker- the Craft SuperShow is going to be in Rosemont, IL in July! Maybe you can check it out there.

  15. PinkyK says:

    What a great opportunity! What an awesome way to spread craftiness!

  16. OMG. Aleene? I just used her glue to glue a dinosaur to my keyboard and to fix my concertina! The stuff is truly awesome. I am so excited to see Craftster doing bigger and bigger things. It is amazing to watch this thing keep growing.

    I’m with Superhooker on this one. Move that sucker to Detroit or Chicago. We probably do more crafts anyway, with our cold crappy weather and all. 😀

  17. Teapot says:

    How cool! I wish I could go! I recognize some faces there….. 🙂

  18. raeraethejetplane says:

    Oh my gawd I want to go! I’d even be willing to get a hotel room out there so I could play both days.

  19. calluna says:

    So tempting…Is there a roster of which Mods and other Craftster celebrities are going?

  20. sweets4ever says:

    Hey, calluna! Leah, jungrrl and kittykill will be at this one for sure!

  21. calluna says:
