NEW FOR 2013: FOUR TRADESHOWS UNDER ONE ROOF
The NSS has long been collocated with SURTEX®, the premier marketplace for surface and textile art and design, and with the International Contemporary Furniture Fair® (ICFF®). This year, a new show will be added to the lineup:
Creative & Lifestyle Arts, serving the East Coast’s $18 billion art, crafting and creative hobby marketplace. Here buyers will source a broad range of innovative crafting and paper art supplies; embellishments; art materials; design tools; DIY kits for home décor, party, holiday and card making; along with supplies for floral, glass, woodworking, jewelry making, needlecrafts and scrapbooking.
