The National Needlearts Association Survey

Hi Stitching Friends!

You may have heard about this survey from your LNS or another blog, but I want to put the information out there as well, because this survey is so important to our industry. This is the tool that shops and designers use to find out what stitchers are interested in. It helps us to better serve you. I go back from time to time to look at the results as I am planning new releases. I also look at past survey results to see where the trends are going. So please, if you have not already done so, take a few minutes to fill out the survey. The survey will only be open until April 30. TNNA is also offering a shopping spree to one lucky participant. Here is all of the pertinent information you need, including the link.

Please complete the triennial national Yarn, Stitching, and Weaving 2013 Survey athttps://www.surveymonkey.com/s/TNNAfiber.
The 10-minute survey asks about your experiences with the needlearts you enjoy: crocheting, cross-stitch, embroidery, knitting, needlepoint, spinning, or weaving. Let us know which types of projects you prefer, how you like to learn, and what you’d like to see needlearts shops do better. The needlearts community needs your advice and opinions, whether you are a beginner or an expert! This survey is conducted every few years by The National NeedleArts Association (TNNA). 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.
· Ensure stores, manufacturers, and other suppliers provide what you want.
· Explore your needlearts interests.
Your valuable input will also help the needlearts community:
· Give guilds, associations, community groups, and others guidance to grow the world of needlearts.
· Help independent retailers and family-owned suppliers succeed by giving them the customer feedback they need.
The survey is sponsored by TNNA, an organization of businesses 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 2013Please complete the survey right away at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/TNNAfiberThe survey closes April 30, 2013.

Spring is erupting in my neighborhood. The flowering trees are absolutely gorgeous. I have forsythia cut and placed all over my house to bring the Spring indoors. My fat cat has come out of his winter hibernation and is back to all of his feline eccentricities. We were beginning to worry about him, as he was sleeping a good part of the each day away, but no more. He is back following us around the house and being very vocal. The pup isn't quite sure what to think of him.

Until the next time, happy stitching!
