TNNA will be in the Needlearts Zone at the Bay Area's Maker Faire

Maker Faire
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 to:

If you have any questions, please email

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.
