The Banners of Hope Booth at the Craft and Hobby Association trade show, Anaheim, California January 2014

I have been showcasing my work  with the Fabric Arts Council of CHA and the Banners of Hope project over the past few months here on my blog. It has been a wonderful journey that involved meeting and working with great people. The booth opened to great reviews and attracted attention from numerous magazines, fabric manufacturers, artists, bloggers and news outlets including the Today Show. Here is the  link to the spot the Today show filmed at CHA. You will notice Amanda Herring from The Quilted Fish in numerous spots in the film clip. She designed a banner and walked the Today Show news reporter through the process of creating the banner.  http://www.today.com/video/today/54176189/#54176189


Getting ready for the big interview. Lights, Camera, Action!

Thank You Dear SponsorsHere I am in the middle of a Banners of Hope sandwich with Amanda Herring and Paula Jones.  Thank you sponsors this would not have been possible without your generous donation of $$ and products. We had over a 100 banners created at the show.

Charity Wings Interview at CHAYes, that is Elena Etcheverry interviewing me about Banners of Hope. Elena and her wonderful volunteers helped out at the booth every day of the show and made this work. I am a little scared to think what would have happened if we had not had their constant support during the show. Charity Wings will be coordinating the Banners of Hope travelling exhibit after the banners are showcased at the Charity Wings Art Center for the next few weeks. I cannot wait to hear where they will go.

Did I mention that Paula Jones, Andrew Williamson and I dropped by the Charity Wings Art Center at the close of CHA to help out at the Charity Wings Hopeathon event. I want to give a special shout out to Stephanie Garrison as she helped out so much at the show as well as the Hopeathon. Stephanie is a freelance reporter and photographer. I feel like I have made a new friend for life.
