Join me for Spinzilla

I'm pretty excited to be the Team Louet captain for an inaugural spinning event this fall, Spinzilla! This new event is a fun way to see which team can collectively spin the most yarn during Spinning and Weaving Week (October 7-13, 2013).

The time is now to choose your team and build your spinning fiber arsenal: there are a lot of prizes at stake, but we'll also be competing for a traveling trophy and the glory of it all!

Registration opened this morning and costs $10*. You'll want to hurry, because space is limited to 25 spots for each team!

Our only stipulations to be a part of Team Louet (besides registering here) are:

1. Team members should be using Louet spinning wheels.
2. While you are not limited to using only Louet spinning fiber, we do request that team members spin at least two singles of Louet fiber during the course of the event.

Of course, I'll be keeping my captain's log right here on my blog in addition to the Team Louet Ravelry thread. I'll hope you'll join in the fun!

100% of the proceeds will go towards toward establishing a spinning program within The Needle Arts Mentoring Program (NAMP) - more on that here

  1. Hah, that sounds brilliant. Shame I don't spin, am not in the US or Canada, and am also booked up on those dates :p

    Apart from those tiny problems I'd so give something like this a go.

    Good luck! :D
