We’re gearing up for Spinzilla — a week of competitive spinning put on by TNNA’s Spinning and Weaving Group — and Team Storey captain Alison Pacuska says: we want you!
|Join Team Storey for Spinzilla, and spin for a good cause!|
Why, with a week of spinning for a good cause, and we want you to join us!
Spinzilla is a week-long spinning extravaganza presented by The National NeedleArts Association (TNNA)’s Spinning and Weaving Group each October. The event supports TNNA’s Needle Arts Mentoring Program, which pairs mentors with young people who might not otherwise get to learn the needle arts — crochet, cross stitch, knitting, needlepoint, and spinning — and enjoy our particular brand of relaxation and creativity.
|Register by September 22 and spin with us for one week in October.|
As a team, we invite members to make this as fun and creative an event as possible: use as many colorways as you like, spin fleece from as many breeds as you like, or just keep it simple. Commercial preparations are fine, and plying counts, too, as long as the singles are spun during the week of Spinzilla. The important thing is just to spin, spin, spin.
And of course, there are prizes! Spinzilla offers some, but we at Team Storey have one too: in honor of The Spinner’s Book of Fleece, the member of our team who spins fleece from the most breeds of sheep will win a Beth Smith Sampler from The Spinning Loft!
We don’t want you to miss out — but teams are limited to 25 people and registration ends on September 22. So join in the fun and join Team Storey: register here and get ready to spin! Registration is a mere $10 and all funds collected through registration fees go toward the Needle Arts Mentoring Program.
