The purpose of NAME Day is to unite and involve all NAME members by doing the same project on the same day at different locations throughout the US and internationally. Participation in an event may occur in clubs, locally, statewide, regionally, or online.
NAME Day will take place on Saturday, October 1, 2021. Expanded events (or areas with conflicting dates) should occur as close to this date as is reasonably possible.
Project: All events will center on the same project. The 2022 NAME Day project will be a memory box that is designed to show off past, present and future special items. NAME is also planning a series of reasonably priced kits (similar to Quick Minis) and/or finished pieces all year long!
This year’s NAME Day project will offer only one size. The project has 12 small compartments and one larger middle section. Kits will include an etched 50th Anniversary logo that may be placed anywhere.
Add your own favorite 8″ x 10″ picture frame to keep out the dust, optional lighting, a shelf, or a pedestal for small items. The options are yours.
Attend a local event or participate online.
