The CHA SuperShow was filled with booths and booths of great products and some truly great deals. There were also some products that are either new to the market, or new to us at Craft Critique. Here are a couple of cool products we saw at the CHA SuperShow in action.
First off is the My Friendship Bracelet Maker, a cool tool aimed at kids for making friendship bracelets from embroidery threads. Yes, the same bracelets we made back in the 80s. What is cool about this gadget is that it eliminates the need to tie one end to your bedpost or attach a safety pin that you secure to your gym shoe in order to hold your threads taut. It also keeps your threads organized so that you don’t miss a strand.
Here’s Marisa Soltman from My Friendship Bracelet Maker showing us how it works:
Isn’t she just the cutest demonstrator? And how about our young dashing reporter?
Another cool product demonstration we saw at the Craft SuperShow was at the Martelli Enterprises booth. Scott from Martelli showed us what makes his rotary trimmer and mats different from all the rest. First off, the mats are made from astro turf so that they are bendable and can be heated and cooled but won’t crack or break. Secondly, due to their unique handle positing, their trimmers can not only cut a crazy amount of fabrics at once but they can also move from paper to fabric and back to paper without dulling the blade. Oh and did I mention those blades last 3-5 year?!
Here’s Scott to show you how it all works:
