Foundation: Spinning & Weaving Kits

At this time, the TNNA Foundation is issuing a Request for Proposal (RFP) for Spinning and Weaving Kits. The purpose and scope of this RFP is to source the materials included in the kits used for spinning and weaving education through the Needle Arts Mentoring Program (NAMP).  We would like to offer suppliers in the TNNA Spinning and Weaving community the opportunity to submit a proposal for the supplies listed below. As a result of this RFP, the TNNA Foundation will review proposals and award non-binding purchase agreements to one or more suppliers as necessary for the sourcing of these items to make educational kits that will be given to approved programs at no cost to requesting organizations per the NAMP By-Laws.

To suppliers who submit a proposal, please keep in mind that the TNNA Foundation will purchase items using funds raised by the Spinzilla charity event.  Therefore, it is requested that all bids represent the lowest possible cost so that TNNA Foundation funds can be maximized to provide the greatest number of kits.

N.B. Suppliers are not required to submit a proposal for both spinning and weaving. A complete RFP will be accepted for solely weaving or solely spinning.

The TNNA  Foundation (501 3c), the charitable arm of the TNNA, was founded in 1999 as the Helping Hands Foundation.  The Foundation’s purpose is to support its membership in creating community partnerships which promote and encourage relationships between adults and youth, fostering curiosity, creativity and a feeling of achievement through the teaching of needle arts.  Its name was changed to the TNNA Foundation in 2016, as the TNNA incorporated in the State of Illinois.  The Needle Arts Mentoring Program (NAMP) remains the primary program of the organization.  Since 2017, the Foundation Board has been working to restructure NAMP to be self-sustaining.  This RFP represents the first NAMP program to be reinstated.  The TNNA Foundation will continue to work to restore all needle arts disciplines as funding is available.
