Creativation 2017

Each year Designers, Maker/DIY'ers, Buyers. Retailers, Suppliers Manufacturers, Distributors, Editors, Publishers and Bloggers attend Creativation (formerly the Craft and Hobby Association Mega show).  This is the largest trade show in the US where visitors come to see all the new, creative products presented by manufacturers from all over the world.  The show isn't open to the general public, so we thought we'd share a round up of blog posts about the show. These will give those of you who couldn't go to Phoenix, a sneak peak at some of the creative opportunities coming to your stores this coming year.

Each of us returned home with notes about the products we can't wait to work with and sometimes we received samples to try.  After you've seen all the photos and read thru our posts, come back here and let us know which products you're most excited about in the comment section below. We may just select one of the comments at random and send you a box of a few new products to create with.  Let's go.............            

Hope you enjoyed the ride!  

Don't forget to let us know which products you think you'd like to work with!
