Several volunteers commented about how nice it was to spend time with other fiber artists, as well as welcome newcomers to the needlearts. Dawn Pollard, Treasurer

After sending out a quick email to thank our Detroit Maker Faire volunteers, I received such wonderful responses, I just had to note a few of them.

Sue K. sent a great picture, and although it’s not one of the new stitchers we taught at Maker Faire, I just had to post it . . . It demonstrates how very skilled our volunteers are, and is a testament to the fact they can motivate just about anyone to learn.

of the Monguagon Chapter of the Embroiderers' Guild of America and a
member of Needlepoint by Night, part of the American Needlework Guild told us she "walked away from the event in a great mood” and sent her best "to each of you that helped to bring the love of needlework to the Metropolitan Detroit area!!”

In fact, I don’t recall anyone leaving without asking to be notified again next year.

I have a feeling volunteer list for the Needlearts Zone in Dearborn is going to fill up quickly in 2011 . . . in the meantime, we’re in the planning stages for Maker Faire NYC, to be held at the New York Hall of Science on September 25 and 26th. We’ll be sending out information soon. If you want to know more now, send an email to
