Mississippi State University Participates in PiPN Scholar Program

Posted By TNNA Staff, Tuesday, December 7, 2010

Thanks to a dedicated professor, Dr. Phyllis Miller, Mississippi State University College of Human Sciences (Starkville MS), the school has formally committed to participate in TNNA’s PiPN program by offering the PiPN Scholar Program as part of their course curriculum.

Joining the University of Akron, Akron OH, the college will be the second to offer a basic course covering all the hand needlearts (knitting, crochet, needlepoint, cross-stitch and embroidery) as part of a comprehensive program that includes an internship component. MS State’s course also includes hand dyeing techniques, beading, macrame and cultural influences and trends.

Dr. Miller, herself an award winning fiber artist and published author, will be teaching the class with some assistance from other colleagues. TNNA provides materials and support for the program.

We’ve now enrolled over 30 different host companies and will continue adding new ones as they come in. So if you’re a TNNA member or a member of CRAFT or the International Association of Professional Quilters, you can apply to host an intern for the summer, or for any other time during the year.

To see all the open positions, please check out

Interns are a source of new ideas, energy, and an extra pair of hands for any type of company . . . retail, wholesale, publishing, marketing, or whatever. In return, the students gain valuable experience that can be applied to the needlearts industry or easily transferred to other future career paths.

To become a host, fill out the easy on-line host application.

To apply for an internship, fill out the intern/apprentice application form.
