We had a wonderful time at The National NeedleArts Association’s Summer Trade Show in Indianapolis. Our new limited-edition keychain zipper bags, specially designed JUST for Fix-A-Stitch by Chic-a, were quite the hit! Not only do they keep your Fix-A-Stitch set safe and sound right on the strap of your favorite knitting bag, they’re also handy to link onto your purse to hold mints, shopper loyalty cards, etc.
Supplies are limited, so ask your favorite local yarn shop to order some today! Retailers that are already carrying these darling bags in-shop (and in some cases, online) include:
- At Home Store
- Black Locust Farm
- The Black Sheep
- Crafty Needle
- Haus of Yarn
- Knitting to Know Ewe
- Personal Threads Boutique
- Stitch Diva Studios
- The Woolery
- Yarn Expressions
According to their website, “Chic-a was founded in 2007, when Joanna Reyes realized there had to be a better solution to storing ongoing knitting and crochet projects. Ziploc bags kept breaking, and the designs of existing bags were impractical for knitting and crochet. What she wanted was a knitting project bag that would last for many projects, would be practical, and yet be fun to carry around. Using her many years of sewing experience she designed and crafted the Quick Draw Project Bag. The immediate popularity of this bag confirmed the demand for her fusion of practical and fun. She continued to develop products to meet this demand, and out of this, Chic-a was born.”
We can attest that they’re wonderful people with wonderful products. Their bags can hold your latest yarn projects — and, of course, your Fix-A-Stitch sets!
Here they are setting up the booth.
Doesn’t it look wonderful? So nice of them to incorporate the Fix-A-Stitch pink (I guess it’s Chic-a pink, too)!
Some bags on display.
Bonnie and Donna headed to the San Diego Convention Center last weekend to take part in the annual Winter Trade Show put on by The National NeedleArts Association. At their booth, they met with dozens of knit and crochetwear designers, retailers and distributors who either were introduced to the Fix-A-Stitch tool on the spot — or were coming back for more!
Here’s a look back at the weekend through the lens of Bonnie’s camera (and a few through Donna’s camera, too):
