Well, for all you crafty bloggers who, if like me, didn't have a clue what
people were talking about when they mentioned CHA, I have now
cracked the code, Yippee!!!!
(They are not all off to a Tea Convention or to learn a new dance)!!!...
CHA stands for the Craft and Hobby Association!
In early 2004, the two most successful organisations serving the craft
and hobby industry, the Hobby Industry Association (HIA) and the
Association of Crafts & Creative Industries (ACCI), amalgamated to
form the Craft & Hobby Association (CHA).
Their goal is to stimulate the sales growth of the craft and hobby
industry worldwide by creating consumer demand, helping members
succeed and leading the industry. They are actively involved in national
promotional events designed to increase customers' knowledge and
awareness of industry products. Well acording to their stats Crafting
is now a $31 billion dollar market in the U.S., Wow!!!
So there you have it!!! Credit Crunch? What Credit Crunch?? xx
