Last weekend, a group of editors from Prime Publishing (the publishers of Creative Income, FaveCrafts and more) traveled to the Craft and Hobby Association’s Winter Trade Show in Anaheim, CA. This isn’t the first outing for Prime, but it was definitely the most memorable.
This year, Prime Publishing hosted an exclusive Blogger Event for a pre-selected group of industry insiders and leading craft company. At the end, bloggers and company representatives were given a chance to eat, drink and network. Longtime AllFreeCrochet contributor Michael (Mikey) Sellick attended the event and broke everything down in a way that only he can.
The even started with socializing outside the ballroom, but when the doors opened, it was a true “feeding frenzy.” In fact, Mikey says, “it was like in the 80′s of mad dashing to the shelves for that last Cabbage Patch doll but with bloggers dashing to the companies they want to speak to. It was exciting and so highly charged with optimism and realistic dreams. The bloggers who were extended the final invitation deserved to be in the room. Each of us were our own competitor.” And that was only the first 10 minutes!
