Hi Stitchers -
A couple of things today - the article I promised on "stitching faster" can be viewed HERE - let me know if you have any questions.
I also want to use today's email to let you know about a survey TNNA (The National Needlework Association) is conducting. Please take a few minutes of your time to participate - you can find the survey at www.NeedleArts2010.net . The needle arts community needs your advice and opinions whether you are a beginner or an expert! This survey is only conducted every few years. Your input is very important and will be included in a published national report.
Your answers are anonymous. No one will use your survey responses to market to you.
In return for your participation, you will receive valuable benefits:
· Gain a chance to win one of five $100 needlearts gift certificates. (You could spend it at Needle Delights!)
· Ensure stores and suppliers provide what you want.
· Explore your needlearts interests.
Your valuable input will help the needlearts community, too:
· Advocate for more programs to support the needlearts, such as Helping Hands Needlearts Mentoring, Stitch N' Pitch, and Stitching for Literacy.
· Help independent retailers and family-owned suppliers succeed by giving them the customer feedback they need.
As a thank-you for completing the survey, The National NeedleArts Association (TNNA) is offering the chance to win one of five $100 needlearts store gift certificates. To enter the sweepstakes simply fill out the survey at www.NeedleArts2010.net and then click on "Sweepstakes Entry" on the page you see after submitting the survey.
The 10-minute survey asks about your experiences with the needlearts you enjoy: crocheting, cross-stitch, embroidery, knitting, or needlepoint. Let us know which types of projects you prefer, the kinds of new products you want, and what you'd like to see needlearts shops do better.
The survey is sponsored by The National NeedleArts Association, a business organization dedicated to supporting the needlearts community. Hart Business Research is conducting this survey for TNNA and compiling the results into a major national report, The State of Specialty Needlearts 2010.
PLEASE COMPLETE THE SURVEY RIGHT AWAY AT www.NeedleArts2010.net .
Survey closes April 19, 2010.
Thanks for your help in this important fact gathering mission! As a dual member of TNNA (as a shop and as a designer), this survey is really important to me. I would love one of my customers to be one of the sweepstakes winners!
Have a great week!
