Our next Event…….CHA PARTY DETAILS :-)

Ok, so i am here in my kitchen not surrounded by boxes anymore (“Yahoo,” says Mike!) and am putting together the final details of our next big event, which of course is our Bi-Annual CHA release party… I also realised that there are probably a few people who read my blog that don’t know what CHA is?

CHA stands for the Craft and Hobby Association based in the US, Canada and the Uk. You can find more info about them here
