Have you been to lately?

I know it’s summer and there’s so much going on, but on those hot humid days, doing a little indoor surfing can be relaxing and informative. If you haven’t stopped by TNNA’s Web site, in the past month, it’s time.

Did you know you can already register online for the Fall Needlecraft Market, September 25 – 26, 2010 in St. Charles/St. Louis MO. Fall, you say? Certainly far, far away. But it will be here before you know it, and now’s the time to make your plans, and let your customers know you’ll be bringing home some treasures for their holiday purchases.

Pathways into Professional Needlearts

You can also find information about PiPN 2010 — TNNA’s Pathways into Professional Neeldlearts internship/apprenticeship program. This summer’s students have been in the field since the middle of June, and are finding their experiences to be beyond their expectations.

I recently heard from one of the interns working with Handwork Studios. Trekina Miller of Mississippi State University commented "I love it and everyone that I am working with. I look forward to going to work everyday. I am also working with the Fashion Bootcamp program in Rosemont, PA for the Handwork Studio. I can not thank you enough for this great opportunity!!”

To streamline the entire process we’ve created an online Host Application Form. You can now go online and request an intern for the upcoming fall, winter or next year. Students will also be able to register online within the coming months. If you’ve been a host in the past, please let us know and we can make sure you’re information is entered correctly.

TNNA's Needlearts Stitch Zone

Maker Faire Detroit

You’ll also see that TNNA is heading off to Maker Faire in Dearborn MI this week. We’ve had an enormous response from volunteers who have offered to come out to our Needlearts Stitch Zone to help teach knitting, cross-stitch, embroidery, needlepoint and crochet. In fact, we’ve pretty much filled all our time slots! If you’re in the area, you should stop by the Henry Ford Museum.

If this is even half as much fun as the San Mateo Maker Faire, it’s bound to be a real kick.
