TNNA Phoenix! Here I come!

Hurricane Erik is expected to reach Phoenix, Arizona the end of January! 

I am very excited to be one of four winners of a Scholarship from the Counted Thread and Embroidery group of TNNA (The National Needleart Association). What this means is I get to attend a big show/market this January in Phoenix. It is a huge honor and...to be honest...I am SCARED!

It is amazing to me. I am looking forward to meeting all the great shop owners and companies who I have spoken with in the past year and all the new people I will meet too.

If you can't tell...I am still in shock. Ever since I started designing I have wanted to attend a TNNA market. Without this scholarship it would've been years before I would've been able to go.

So, thank you everyone for sharing my designs with others and spreading the word!


  1. Erik, I'm SO excited for you!! Congratulations!

  2. Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Erik,

    You will have a great time. I had hoped to make this one too, but due to school commitments, I won't be able to. Don't be scared...its a great experience and a wonderful way to make new connections, and meet with others that you've always known the voice but never met!

  4. Thank you Carolyn! I am very excited but yeah...a little scared too. It would've been great to meet you. Hopefully this experience will open more doors and I will he able to attend more shows.

  5. Congrats take lots of pictures to show us!!
