May 22 and 23rd, TNNA will again invite everyone to get into
the "Needlearts Zone” at the Bay Area Maker Faire.
Maker Faire is known as the largest DIY event in the country.
Last year, the event drew over 78,000 people to the San Mateo CA Event
Center. TNNA’s Stitch Zone hosted close to a thousand of them. Volunteers
taught a stream of eager "makers” how to knit, crochet, needlepoint,
cross-stitch and embroider. Both visitors and volunteers enjoyed the fiber, the
creativity and the new found friends.
TNNA is still looking for volunteers for San Mateo. If you
live close by, or think you might be visiting San Mateo the weekend of the 22nd
(I know it’s coming up quickly), and would like to volunteer to teach, set up or
tear down, please let us know.
Remember, you receive a free pass to the faire on the day you
volunteer. If you volunteer for a Friday time slot, you can use your free pass
on either Saturday or Sunday.
We’ve streamlined the process this year. You can sign up to help by going
If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
By the way, this year, there will be three faires, with Detroit and New York
City following the Bay Area event. So check back later to find out how to get
involved in the future Maker Faires.
