For more information, go to

Message from our Scholarship Program Coordinator Jackie Dowling:

Given the importance of maintaining social/physical distancing, and possible self-isolation for some, we understand that meeting some of the application requirements for the Fall/Winter scholarship deadline will not be possible. For example, it may not be possible to record your videos in a studio/theatre or to have someone accompany you for your music piece.

Please know we will be understanding of these limitations and will welcome modifications (filming in your living room, solo performances rather than being accompanied, etc.). We do hope that you do your best to meet the requirements that are within your control. For example, one merged video, artistic statement, multiple dance elements, etc.

Also, remember that if you submitted an application for the 2020 Spring/Summer deadline you can use the same support material: video, portfolio, writing samples, or film links.

In addition, we here at NSTT know how important the arts are in times like these. We are seeing, now more than ever, on social media how various forms of arts can bring people together (while remaining apart! and can bring hope, calm and healing to others.

And as always, please be in touch if you have any questions!

Saturday, April 25, 2020

Learn the art of visible mending, which borrows techniques from traditional patching and darning to breath new life in your clothes with repairs that strengthen and embellish well loved items.

Spend a relaxing afternoon learning this traditional and beautiful style of functional embroidery with me. I will teach you how to mark your design and perfect your stitches while you work on a sampler and/or repair your loved clothes. The possibilities for future projects are endless!

Enjoy this course from from the comfort of your home. All you need is a needle and thread, or if you prefer you can purchase sashiko supplies from my website.

The online course allows for opportunities to engage with the teacher and interact with your other classmates. Very easy to access, all you need is a computer, tablet or smartphone with camera and microphone. I will send you the log in details.
