Hobby-X Moments

The rollercoaster ride that was our programme since returning from Johannesburg after HobbyX is becoming slightly less frenetic, so while coming up for air we would like to share some HobbyX moments with you.

It was a real treat to have so many visitors at our stand. They were not only buying books (yay!), but also sharing ideas and complimenting our range.

This photo was taken from the exhibitors lounge one floor up, and shows the great crowds attending the expo.  Visitors may not always like the crowded passages, but exhibitors LOVE them!

Our beautiful stand attracted visitors of a different kind too. A bee was so taken by this lovely image that it stayed a while but got rather agitated when no nectar was to be found on the flower. It stung Monean who had an acute reaction to the poison and ended up in the Medical Office where she was given oxygen and stabilized but eventually taken to Olivedale Hospital’s emergency unit. She was discharged later that evening, whoozy, but basically okay.

One of our young fans, Kamika was absolutely in love with Katrien’s Cakes. We hope it will inspire her to great things. She may just be one of our future authors!

There is only one job that is tougher than setting up the stand – that is breaking it down. It really is hard work, but fortunately time flies when you’re having fun and our stuff was ready for the 4 m trailer soon enough.

All in all, a worthwhile exercise. See you all in September at the Midrand show!
