CARTER SEIBELS OF WOMAN SHOPS WORLD
The creative visionary for Woman Shops World, Carter dabbled in beads, textiles, and adornment her whole life. WSW was born when Carter traveled with her soon-to-be-husband Aveesh to India for the first time on a semi-precious buying trip. The feeling of home made her feel as if she experienced a past-life connection to the colorful, chaotic land. Originally on a search for gemstones, Carter came home with boxes of tassels, trinkets, and textiles and the rest is history. You can consistently see her fascination of adornment, sparkle, and color, paired with the mystique of faraway lands keep in her jewelry and offerings at Woman Shops World.
Heartfelt words about CAMP TNTP:
"I absolutely LOVED, LOVED, LOVED camp! I loved crafting and laughing with women from all over for a few hours a week and having reason to take a step back from work and giving myself something for just me!" - Estee K., New Jersey
"Taking time for myself each week to make a new craft and learn the history behind it was so much fun. I didn't realize how much I needed that interaction time with other crafters. I cried during our last camp zoom together just like we would if we were saying goodbye at the end of summer. I am already looking forward to seeing my camp friends again at the next camp." -Wendy L., Texas
"Camp was everything I hoped for and more. Very few of my friends are interested in crafting, and finding a group of people who share my love for crafts who are genuinely supportive and excited for me was so special." - Jen J., Georgia
"I was equally excited about all the craft sessions as well as the canteen sessions. Your guests touched me all in their own way. The joy I felt to be with a like-minded creative and fun community really cannot be overstated." -Laura L., New York
"Adult craft camp is the best thing ever.... EVER!!!! And you should get the box cause it is so easy to know where everything is and you don’t need to search the world for anything." - Candice P., New York
“Camp was the bright spot of 2020 for me! I loved learning new crafts and having something to look forward to every week. It was so inspiring to see how everyone's projects turned out and it motivated me to create for fun every day.” - Jenn V., California

We bet you have lots of questions! See if we answer yours below. If not, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org & our camp staff will get back to you!
How many available spots are there at CAMP TNTP? Only 60!
Why should I pre-register and how does it work? When you pre-register for CAMP TNTP, you automatically save $25 off of CAMP TNTP and you secure your spot for the upcoming session. It also helps you to break up registration payments over time. To pre-register, you will pay a $100 non-refundable deposit through the TNTP Shop by the end of the pre-registration period (6/13/21) or until spots fill up. This amount will be deducted from the total pre-registration fee. The request for balance payment will be emailed to you on the first day of regular registration (6/14/21), which you must submit by the last day of registration (7/11/21) in order to confirm your spot at CAMP TNTP.
Are payment plans an option? Yes! At checkout, you can choose to pay in full or you can choose to pay in four equal installments using Shop Pay Installments. Simply choose the Shop Pay option during checkout, then choose to pay in 4 equal installments when entering your payment information. Your card will be automatically billed every two weeks with no additional fees. If you have further questions about this payment plan option, please contact us at email@example.com.
Are there any discounts for CAMP TNTP? YES! There are four ways to save on CAMP TNTP. By pre-registering by June 13th, you will automatically save $25 on your registration. You can save an additional $25 when you register with a friend or family member, if you’re a returning camper, or if you’re a TNTP TEAcher. If you qualify for more than one of the three additional ways to save, you cannot combine discounts and can only receive the max additional $25 off.
PLEASE NOTE: You may not apply any other TNTP Shop discounts towards CAMP TNTP.
How will my discount(s) apply? Pre-registrants will automatically see their $25 discount reflected in their camp payment balance. Registrants who sign up with a friend or family member must pay in full upfront, but will each receive a $25 refund pending that: 1. You and your friend/family member indicate one another on your Registration Forms (or notify us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org), and 2. You both complete your registration payments.
Returning campers and TNTP TEAchers will be emailed a $25 discount code that can be applied towards either their Pre-Registration Balance or Full-Price Registration, beginning the first day of regular registration (6/14/21).
Do I have to buy supplies for camp? Nope! By registering for CAMP TNTP, you will receive a box filled with most everything you need to craft along at camp, minus a few standard craft supplies such as scissors. It will also contain some extra camp swag to get you in the spirit and welcome you to CAMP TNTP!
Can I opt-out of the Camp Box? Not anymore. In past sessions we have offered the option to sign up with or without the camp box, however we now only offer the one registration option, which comes with the Camp Box. We promise you’ll be SO grateful to have it during camp!
What if I miss a workshop? We hope you can make all of our sessions, but we know sometimes things come up! We record each workshop and send it out to all campers after class so you can always refer back to it.
What is the difference between a Workshop and a Craft Canteen? The Workshops are where all the craft learning happens! Craft Canteens are fun and more casual programming where campers can hang out with one another and work on their latest craft project. Occasionally, Craft Canteens will have a special guest or activity for added CAMP TNTP awesomeness! Be sure to look at the calendar for the upcoming session to find out what we have planned!
How can I get craft help when I'm not in class? Each week campers will receive an email of resources and video tutorials to help you practice and expand upon your new skills. Your craft counselors will also be available for craft questions through your session’s private Facebook Group!
What is the difficulty level of the crafts being taught? What if I’m a beginner or advanced crafter? Is CAMP TNTP for me? CAMP TNTP is designed to educate and inspire crafters of all skill levels! Whether you’re totally new to crafting or have been crafting for ages, there’s always something awesome to learn at CAMP TNTP. All workshops are designed to be beginner-friendly, then offer “level-up” ideas for seasoned crafters who want to kick up their skills a notch! Workshops span a wide range of craft categories to ensure that even experienced crafters will enjoy something new!
What is the Craft Show? At the final session, all campers will present their proudest craft creation at our camp-wide Craft Show! Each camper will have a turn to share about their creation, along with their Rose (highlight) & Thorn (biggest challenge) from their time at CAMP TNTP.
