Finally!! Hobby X Time!!
Or at least, that is how it felt, for me at least. I love to attend all art, craft and hobby expo’s and fairs. The more the better. One of the really nice and big ones I love to go to is the Hobby X Expo held in Johannesburg. It is held in Midrand (Pretoria) as well, for which I normally take the train and a bus. But the Johannesburg expo is close enough for me to drive to.
So I eagerly awaited this years Expo to arrive, getting ready for some serious shopping, and meeting new friends, and catching up with old friends.
And I was NOT disappointed at all. It was amazing. I had an awesome time. The stalls were stocked to the roof, the variety and selections were huge, I could not get enough. The exhibitors were super and friendly and helpful where-ever I dropped in.
These are some of the spoils I came home with…..
Loads of Magazines, both from overseas and local (I adore Molly Makes, as you can tell)
Must have some extra yarns for my stash, and I got Malabrigo and Yarn Stash (Malabrigo imported and Yarn Stash is a local yarn)
Beautiful Becky, a fully jointed Bear to make (from Honeydew Bears) and some pretty ribbons and wooden buttons to add to my selection
Thanks to Molly Makes, I got all these fabulous free goodies with the magazines I bought. (little kits of pretty goodies to make, stickers, 2 booklets with patterns and ideas, a calender for 2015, and limited edition Prints, that I will either block on canvas or frame to hang in the craft room)
And I could not go home without these:
Glass paint and canvasses for my daughter and son-in-law
