Spin-In

Bring your spinning wheel, spindle, or charka and join our fun and FREE gathering of fiber enthusiasts on Saturday evening. If you don’t have anything to spin with – come anyway, and show off your exciting new purchases! The Spin-In welcomes experienced spinners and novices alike for hours of conversation, challenges, and contests: Try spinning blindfolded! Compete to see who’s traveled the furthest for a fiber fix! See just how lumpy you can make your yarn! There are oodles of prizes to be won – last year’s winners went home with prizes ranging from fiber (think silk, bison, Paco-vicuna!), spinning books and magazines to silkworms (really!) and stitch markers, a beautiful new Hitchhiker Spinning Wheel, and many other fiber-oriented prizes donated by the Festival’s generous vendors. There’s never a dull moment at the Spin-In, and this year promises to be more fun than ever!
