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!

Thank you!

Another Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival has come and gone, and we could not have done without all of you – Festival goers, volunteers, Festival Committee members, shepherds, and participants in so many activities, competitions and demonstrations! It is amazing to see this come together with all categories of participants contributing to its success. We tried some new things this year, and had a little bad weather to deal with, and we appreciate everyone’s understanding, support, and good cheer. Thanks to everyone for participating in our 44th celebration of all things sheep & wool! We are already thinking about how to do even better next year!

In Peace,

Gwen Handler, Chairman, Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival

Lee Langstaff, President, Maryland Sheep Breeders Association
