TNNA Needlearts Zone at Maker Faire NYC – WOW

Posted By TNNA Staff, Monday, September 27, 2010
Updated: Friday, August 26, 2011

I had the pleasure of spending this past weekend with over 30 volunteers at TNNA’s Needlearts Zone at the World Maker Faire NYC. Held at the Hall of Science, tens of thousands (we don’t know exactly how many just yet) came together just to learn how to "make stuff.”

We were teaching knitting, crochet, cross-stitch and needlepoint to eager new stitchers all day Saturday and what seemed to be 24 hours on Sunday. We were packed that day. After a slower Saturday (probably because of the heat – over 85 I think), Sunday exploded with activity.

Due to a number of factors, most likely that people are just way too busy these days, we were low on volunteers, so the ones who came were doing double-duty. They were only wonderful. And I know they had a great time. When they left their posts, they all made sure we had them on our email list for next year. I’ll post more information and pictures later in the week . . . after I put it all together.

In the meantime, I’ll be on Gone Stitching blog radio later today to fill everyone in on what went on, and what we hope to do in the future. The show starts at 1:45, I believe, and you can pick it up here:
