The National Needlearts Association (TNNA) is conducting a survey of fiber artists as part of their 2016 report. TNNA is the trade group for fiber arts retailers and manufacturers. You may have heard the staff of your friendly local yarn shop talk about going to TNNA. They host a twice-yearly trade show that is the major opportunity for retailers to see all the latest developments in our field. They also host direct-to-consumer events, such as Spinzilla. And they were very supportive of Center for Knit and Crochet by contributing funds that made the initial symposium in 2012 possible.

TNNA has asked people to spread the word. The survey is here and will be up until Saturday 13 February. It is an anonymous survey, but there is a chance to win a $100 gift card. If you knit, crochet, spin, weave, embroider, needlepoint, or cross stitch, your input is needed. The data helps people on the business side of our industry make smart decisions. After all, we do not want friendly local yarn shops to become extinct!

The summary will be available later at this link.
