Party with Expo at Creativation Show in Phoenix, January 19th-21st, Booth #1921


Hi Everyone! Are you ready to party with Expo? We are exhibiting this weekend at the AFCI (Association for Creative Industries) Creativation Show in Phoenix, January 19 th-21st, Booth #1921. The booth has a bright and colorful party theme celebrating all of the pretty and fun trims we have. All three days of the show our talented team will be doing Make and Takes with the attendees. Christie Troxell, Erin Reed, Donna Budzynski and Debra Quartermain, (that’s me) will be sharing creative fun projects using our trims.

From mini Party Cakes to Party Hats we will show you how easy it is to make stunning and trendy party décor and accessories using trims. You do not have to be a sewer or crafter to incorporate trims into your events or décor. All you need is a pair of scissors and a good fabric adhesive like Beacon’s Fabri-Tac. Most of our appliques are also iron on, how easy is that!

Plain paper mache boxes can be transformed with some fringe and pom pom trims into a gift box treasure!

We love all of the colors in our bright Tulle line. Isn’t this tulle cupcake super sweet?

We are going to make magic happen in our Party Booth at Expo! You can even take a magic wand home with you!

See you at the show, Booth #1921! You can also follow along on our FB page and on Instagram @expotrims to see what we are up to at the show!
