Master Needle Artist Program
Learn, Create and Achieve!!  Calling all Advanced Intermediate Stitchers who would like a challenge and a new way of looking at our ART.
The Master Needle Artist Program is approximately 2 years in length with a cost of 250.00. The Program is set up this way, the First Year is devoted to research and thesis writing of your favorite artist, art period, art style, etc. The Thesis should be no shorter than 10 pages or as long as it takes to tell the story of your chosen subject. The Thesis is required to include annotated Bibliography of the sources researched. Year Two is the creative one in which the candidate creates an "Original" piece of Needle Art based on your research in Year One. This is the fun part, putting all your good ideas into your "Original Design.” 
I can tell you from my experience that I loved this process and am now able to stitch in my least favorite hue which is Orange-which I actually used during my whole Master Needle Artist Process. You will grow tremendously in your Needle Art which helps you appreciate the quality of other works of art.
Once you have accomplished the Master Needle Artist Level there is a newly established Senior Master Needle Artist Level to think about. This new level is open to all Graduates of the MNA Program and Graduates of the other Certification Programs with the approval of the Chair.
Please contact the Chair with any and all questions and to begin this fantastic journey at
