Needle Arts Mentoring Program

If you love crochet, cross-stitch, knitting, needlepoint and/or spinning, how about teaching a new generation about these needle arts? You supply the know how and we’ll get FREE supplies in your hands to spread the love.

Needle Arts Mentoring Programs – or NAMPs – can be ANYWHERE that young people gather. Programs have started at elementary, middle and high schools during class time, before school, during lunch, in after school programs and stitching clubs, at libraries, church youth groups, homeschool groups, 4-H groups, scout troops, needlework shops, you name it.

How do you get started? It’s simple: just email and ask about NAMP. We’ll send you basic information about the program and once we’ve agreed that your group is a good fit to become a NAMP, you’ll receive an order form for supplies. All we ask is that you consider a nominal donation to defray our mailing and printing expenses (we suggest $10 for every 20 children in your program).

With your help, the Needle Arts Mentoring Program will teach children a skill they can use their entire life. Learn how! Contact
