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, TNNA.org in the past month, it’s
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
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.
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.
Stitch N’ Pitch has been in full swing this season.
