The CHA Summer Supershow that was held in Rosemont, IL, just outside of Chicago on July 30 and 31, was upon us and the Craft Yarn Council had a front-and-center booth, showing everyone how to use yarn for all kinds of crafts. But the most important were the volunteers from the Northern Illinois Crochet Guild! Shout-out to you guys! Check out Gwen teaching the next passionate generation for crochet.
And there was Svetlana from Spinrite showing how to make pompons – to the delight of a whole family…
Others included Susan Sullivan from Leisure Arts dying yarn with Kool-Aid, Kathleen Sams from Coats showing how to do Tunisian (aka afghan) crochet, and Claire from Lion Brand demo’ing how to wrap a clothes hangar….
and me doing, what else, demonstrating the Ultimate Sweater Machine.
A crazy, exhausting – but good time was had by all! Watch for the next Supershow to be held in Anaheim CA this coming January.
