We will have virtual spin-in for 2021!

We’re planning an exciting three hours this year. Events will include blindfolded spinning and other classic spin-in events! Ribbons will be mailed to contest winners finishing in places 1-5.

If you would like to participate in these contests, please have a blindfold, plastic bags, and wool roving ready to go at 6:00 p.m. We will have categories for hand spindles (drop spindle) and spinning wheels as well as electric spinners. You may enter any one or all three of these categories; they will be timed separately.

We’re also planning a show and tell portion of the evening. We’d like to especially highlight projects you’ve pulled from your stash (stash busters) as well as works in progress (it would be fun to know what year you started them, if you remember!).

Details on accessing the Zoom meeting will be provided here closer to the actual event. Also coming soon – a crossword puzzle and word search. Print one out and bring it our next in-person get together to receive a special prize!

We look forward to seeing you this year on Zoom, and hopefully in person for even more fun next year!
