Stars Display their Crafts: Jane Seymour, Paris Hilton, and Others

Jane Seymour, Paris Hilton, Deborah Norville, and Vanna White will present their wares this weekend at the Craft & Hobby Association (CHA) Winter Convention & Trade Show in Anaheim, California.

Actress and former Dancing star Jane Seymour is well known for her creative endeavors, from painting, to home furnishings, and most recently designing jewelry.

Socialite Paris Hilton will be unveiling Paris Hilton, the Creativity Collection, a line of fashion crafting kits in conjunction with Wooky Entertainment. The Creativity Collection includes a designer scrapbooking kit, a fabric embellishment kit, and fashion creative sets to create fashion jewelry and accessories.

Deborah Norville, television journalist, and author of several knitting books, including her latest, Knit with Deborah Norville, will introduce her brand new yarn line - Serenity, from the Deborah Norville Collection from Premier Yarns.

Vanna White, the co-host of Wheel of Fortune, is an avid crocheter, and spokesperson for Lion Brand Yarn Company. She has collaborated with Lion Brand on the books Heartfelt Gifts to Knit and Crochet and Color It Beautiful Afghans inspired by her yarn with Lion Brand - Vanna’s Choice.

All of the ladies will be making appearances at the show, however, if you are hoping to see them and you are not in the business, you're probably out of luck. The CHA Convention & Trade Show is open to those in trade only.
