Hobby-X is officially underway in Johannesburg after taking a two-year hiatus due to the covid-19 pandemic. The expo, which is now taking place at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit & International Convention Centre, runs until 8 May and features everything you love when it comes to hobbies and crafts.
Hobby-X is the best place to discover new creative ideas and opportunities to develop them in new ways. One example of this is through Cricut, my favourite DIY crafts machine. The Cricut team will be available during Hobby-X at the PNA stand and visitors can see these machines in action as they craft vinyl, prints, cuts and so much more.
You can also grab your very own Cricut Joy machine this weekend at Hobby-X for R2999 in a special bundle that includes a StandardGrip Machine Mat, Smart Vinyl, Transfer Tape, StrongGrip Machine Mat, Paint Markers and a Toolset. Cricut is also running a cool promotion where visitors can select a bingo ball and if they get a blank ball, the team will personalize it for them.
If you have been on the fence about Cricut, or don’t know what the machines are and why the hype is real, this would be the best opportunity to witness the seamless (and easy) creative process for yourself.
