Creativ Festival Spring Show recap from Guest Blogger: Lori Tarantini

The Creativ Festival Spring Show was held on April 25th and 26th at the International Centre in Mississauga, Ontario. The Festival is celebrating its 27th year. The show is about learning, creativity and crafting it yourself.

When the show doors opened Friday morning waves of people flooded the show floor. It was well attended by consumers from all over the city and even other provinces. Believe it or not, our friends from the United States also attended the show. It was a great opportunity to indulge in creativity combined with a fantastic shopping excursion.

We worked together with the Crochet Crowd team to ensure a good selection of Red Heart product was available at the Crochet Crowd booth. For this show, the Crochet Crowd’s theme was ‘Alice Hooks in Wonderland’. The team reached out to consumers to create a top hat using Red Heart’s Halloween Top Hat free pattern that would be used as decoration but could also be entered into a lucky challenge sponsored by Creativ Festival, Crochet Crowd and Red Heart. Over 300 hats were submitted for this creative challenge. The hats were sold at the festival to support an art scholarship program.

The Canadian Red Heart team would love to meet you all at the Fall show as they will once again be exhibiting at booth #141 for the yearly yarn tasting. The show is scheduled for October 24 th, 25 th and 26th, 2014 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in the heart of Toronto, Canada.  Come and sample the exciting selection from our 2014 yarn collection and learn some new techniques such as arm knitting. The Crochet Crowd will once again be sure to inspire us all while offering an unforgettable Red Heart shopping selection.
