Richmond, VA, United States, 2010/02/09 - K & M of VA, Inc. is proud to announce that the Craft-N-Spin received the “Overall Best Innovation” award at the Craft & Hobby Association Winter Trade Show in Anaheim, Ca last week.
A panel of judges comprised of retailers, CHA members, CHA consultants and members of the media chose the Craft-N-Spin as the best new product from a pool of over 100 new products in the Innovation Showcase. To be eligible products must have been launched after the CHA Summer Trade Show in July.
The Craft & Hobby Association Winter Trade Show for retailers and industry professionals held on Jan 24-27 is the world’s largest craft and hobby show. Over 600 US and international exhibitors filled more than 228,000 square feet of exhibit space in the Anaheim Convention Center and demonstrated their products to 12,000-14,000 attendees from over 60 countries.
The Trade Show followed the annual Craft & Hobby Association Winter Craft SuperShow. This consumer-focused event on Jan 22-23 drew over 11,000 crafters, scrapbookers and enthusiastic shoppers to the Convention Center.
Crafters and buyers alike were impressed by the versatility of the innovative Craft-N-Spin. The Craft-N-Spin expands on the ingenious idea of the Painter’s Pyramid and not only securely elevates but also effortlessly rotates craft projects. By eliminating contact with wet surfaces the Craft-N-Spin ensures greater results with less mess and less effort.
With booths at both the Craft SuperShow and the Trade Show the Craft-N-Spin was introduced to thousands of excited consumers and buyers. Inventor and K & M President Mike Bucci said of the Craft-N-Spin’s success at the show, “The Craft & Hobby Association Winter Trade Show is where the biggest names in the craft and hobby industry pull out all the stops and roll out their latest and greatest products. To be selected from among all of these amazing new products as the “Overall Best Innovation” is truly an honor. I am grateful for the warm reception at the show and excited for the bright future of the Craft-N-Spin.”
