The Craft and Hobby Association (CHA for short) held it’s Summer Conference and Trade Show July 19-21 in Rosemont, IL. This is exciting news for scrapbookers as the latest products are released for the upcoming seasons. The best part for those who are unable to attend is that there is no shortage of photos of the event shared online.
