The National NeedleArts Association (TNNA) is sponsoring a educational needlearts booth at the San Mateo Maker Faire, May 21st, 22nd and we are looking for volunteers to teach knitting, crochet, embroidery, needlepoint and cross stitch. This is an amazingly fun experience. We are asking for volunteers to sign up for a few hours of teaching and in return you will receive FREE entrance to Maker Faire (value: $25) on the day you volunteer. There is plenty of easy public transportation to Maker Faire which is taking place at the San Mateo Event Center.

If you aren’t familiar with Maker Faire, it’s a two-day, family-friendly event that celebrates the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) mindset. It is for creative, resourceful people of all ages and backgrounds who like to tinker and love to make things. For more information on Maker Faire go to www.MakerFaire.com.

Please sign up for your volunteer shift: Please include contact information in the “notes to organizer” or email us your contact info to tnnamaker@gmail.com We will be back in touch with more information about your volunteer day at Maker Faire.  Thank you!

And then there were none….


Just a gentle reminder that the sale at Hookerbear Creations (and, indeed, my pattern store’s very existence) has only 36 hours remaining. I positively, absolutely, undeniably will end the event at 11:59:59 pm PDT on 4/20.  If you have difficulty accessing the web site, please email me at Chain Male Design and I will offer you an alternative method to purchase the patterns.

Going out of Business


It has become increasingly evident that maintaining an online store for my patterns is not financially feasible.  To make my patterns accessible,  I have intentionally kept my prices very reasonable. In doing so, however, I lost money in three consecutive years. This simply isn’t acceptable.

Therefore, rather than face another monthly fee for my store, I will be closing it in five days. Until 4/20/11, all patterns are listed at 50% off… the whole kit and caboodle is yours at the greatly  reduced price of $20. Get ’em while they’re hot!
