This category includes manufacturer representatives, designers, educators, demonstrators, professional crafters and bloggers.

In addition to all of the CHA member benefit offerings, the blogger membership includes: Free admission to the CHA 2015 MEGA Show, membership in CHA’s Social Media Section, a subscription to Craft Industry Today magazine and discounts on education programs and services.

"We are very excited about the blogger membership type added to our offerings this year. Professional bloggers are a valuable asset to the craft industry and this is our way of recognizing their contribution and welcoming them,” said Andrej Suskavcevic, President and CEO, CHA.

All blogger members that enroll by November 17th will receive an invitation to attend the Hot Product VIP Media & Retailer Event at the upcoming CHA 2015 Conference & Trade Show (CHA MEGA Show) and will be entered in a drawing to win a CHA 2015 MEGA Show travel package including a 2-night stay for two at the Hilton Anaheim Hotel.
