Banners of Hope at the CHA Show

I attended the CHA (Craft & Hobby Association) show in Anaheim as a designer.  I had the opportunity to work in the Banners of Hope booth, organized by Lorine Mason 
Hoffman Fabrics donated my line of fabrics for attendees to use to make their own banners.  Banners of Hope is a project built around fabric-based banners used to express messages of hope and encouragement in a subtle, artistic format and intended to be displayed in public locations that benefit those in challenging circumstances. 

The banners have been donated to Charity Wings for their art outreach programs and for a Charity hope-a-thon that took place on January 15/16.  The banners will be used by Charity Wings as a traveling exhibit to promote the healing art of crafting.

The Charity Wings Art Center opened its doors in April 2013 in San Marcos (San Diego), CA.  Partnering with other non-profits all over the world, the Charity Wings Art Center hosts free classes and events for their beneficiaries on site or though live streaming technology, providing hope and healing that only art can provide.

Show attendees made some amazing flags with fabric, trim, Sizzix die cuts, fabric pens, an iron and sewing machines!
