FAQ

CONNECT with other embroidery professionals and apparel decorators!

For many embroiderers and apparel decorators, you often work in “isolation,” in more ways than one. Many folks do not really “get” what you do, even among your own family and closest friends. Even if you have a storefront, at times it is just you and the equipment. Isolation is one of the hardest hurdles for you to overcome as a business owner! If you are isolated, where do you get new ideas? Who can you ask when you have questions? How can you generate possibilities for fresh solutions, fresh ideas?

At Embroidery Mart-NASHVILLE, you are immersed in embroiderers and apparel decorators! For the majority of attendees, this is the first or only time ALL YEAR, when everything you want to talk about makes sense to someone else! It is like finding an entire community of people who speak your native language – finally. NNEP events are often described as the industry’s “family reunion – the one you WANT to be at…”

Join the conversation, become part of the community – load up with new ideas, new friendships and new ways to think about your business. You will be very glad you did!
