Hi everyone, Samantha here 🙂 I’m very excited to announce that this year Lisa and Melissa have decided to host a Spinzilla team at Espace Tricot! The store is keen to become more involved in the spinning world and thought this would be a great way to kick start the journey!
Spinzilla is a global event that is held once a year in October to help promote spinning and the fiber arts. The goal of this friendly challenge is to see which team (or inidividual) can spin the most yarn, either on a spinning wheel or a drop spindle, in a week. While this event is a great opportunity to get our spinning friends together, Espace Tricot looks forward to continuing to support the spinning community with regular spinning nights throughout the year as well as increased stocking of tools and fibers.
Whether you are an experienced or novice spinner we encourage you to join us for Spinzilla this year. We will be here to teach and encourage as well as to provide you with useful tips and tricks. I personally love spinning and have been very happy exploring this new-to-me craft. Learning about different fibers has led me to a better understanding of yarn which has not only been exciting but has truly helped me with my knitting knowledge.
We are very excited to start building our team for Spinzilla 2015! The competition week itself is from October 5th to 11th. Spinner registration runs from September 1st to October 2nd. If you are a spinner and you would like to participate, please let us know! It is not necessary to be in Montreal or to be able to come into the shop, virtual members are also welcome. Teams fill up quickly, so be sure to register as soon as possible!
I’m thrilled to be Espace Tricot’s Team Captain this year and can’t wait to share my enthusiasm for spinning! If you would like further information about this event or Team Espace Tricot please do not hesitate to contact us via e-mail.
Stay tuned for more news about Spinzilla events and activities – coming soon!
