Education Corner: Q&A With Agata Aspinwall

As a new teacher, Agata Aspinwall will be instructing attendees this winter on needlepoint during "Two Little Chickadees." Agata's class will be held at the TNNA Winter Market on Saturday, Jan. 27, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. If you want to sign up, register for the Winter Market here, then click below to hear Agata's thoughts on needlepoint. here

TNNA: Have you taught classes at previous TNNA trade shows? If not, what inspired you to teach now?

Agata: This will be my first time teaching at a TNNA trade show. I enjoy teaching needlepoint and share my love for this art form.

TNNA: Can you tell us a little more about the class you'll be teaching?

Agata: I'm teaching a class called Little Chickadees, which is a study in circles and curves, which are one of the hardest stitching to do on a grid.

TNNA: Why should attendees consider registering for your class(es) at the TNNA Winter Market?

Agata: This piece is adorable but besides that, it is a great piece to bring back to your shop and teach. It is on the small side so it is a quick, fun stitch.

TNNA: Why do you think education is an important part of attending the Winter Market?

Agata: Education is such an important part of the Winter Market, because it gets people together to learn about new things going on in the needlepoint world and to make connections with other buyers and sellers.

TNNA: Aside from education, what else are you looking forward to at the Winter Market?

Agata: At Winter Market I'm always looking to see the new designs and designers and to get ideas to bring back to shop, The Enriched Stitch in Wilton Connecticut, it is always fun to see what is happening in other parts of the country.  Also it is a great way to network with people in the industry.

TNNA: When preparing for your trip to the Winter Market, what's the one item you can't forget to pack?

Agata: The most important item to a needlepointer is their peepers!!!
