Going to the Craft & Hobby Association winter show in Anaheim? Please come by the Quayside Publishing Group booth (#1727 in the General Crafts area) on Monday, January 30th from 2 to 3 p.m., where I'll be signing copies of my new book, "Adventures in Bookbinding."
You'll also get a complimentary goodie bag filled with all kinds of fun embellishments and vintage ephemera. Even the bag it comes in is great and you can re-use it.
I love the CHA show and look forward to it every year. I know this makes me sound like a total nerd, but I love the way the convention hall smells when you first step inside.
It's wonderful to be able to see all the new products coming out and I'm always inspired by the incredible samples done by artists and crafters. Hopefully I'll be able to do some make and takes, and I'll have my trusty camera with me and promise to bring back photos of the highlights.
I also look forward to reconnecting with old friends, some of whom I only get to see at the show. So if you're one of them, or if you're a new friend, please come by on Monday, say hello, and pick up a book.
