Our Product of the Year stencils were featured in Fox and friends. Check out the video and watch Elizabeth Hasselbeck use our Shifted Rectangles Stencil1 to stencil an accent wall.
In January we were lucky enough to have a booth in Maker Space at the CHA Megashow. The Stencil1 team had an incredible experience during our time there and we wanted to share some of the highlights with you!
We flew into LA on Thursday night and were up early on Friday morning to set up our booth. Our booth was in the Maker Space which was a wonderful area that celebrated creativity, innovation, and customization. The Maker Space was curated by Sarah Hodsdon, who is is the smartest and most supportive gal I know. She made the Maker Space an unbelievably fun and creative area!
Two things we were extremely excited about were the debut of our award-winning repeat pattern stencils and tools, and playing with our paint to stencil made by Pebeo Paint, who were our paint sponsor during CHA. Everyone who visited the booth had a blast experimenting with their fabric paints.
One of the highlights of our trip was participating in the FaveCrafts Blogger Networking Event. We connected with so many wonderful artists and bloggers from around the country and hope to collaborate with many of them in the future!
Some of the most memorable times of the show happened during our make-and-takes. We made a lot of friends and had great conversation with all the visitors who stenciled a tote bag at our booth. Not to mention, I had the honor of getting a pic with craft guru Jo Pearson and got a squeeze from my dear and talented friend Candie Cooper.
All in all we had a fabulous show, met so many wonderful buyers, artists, crafters- a great time!
