Spin-In 2024 Victoria

February 24 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Mark the date on your calendars! The 18th Annual Spin-In is happening on Saturday, February 24th, 2024 from10 am to 3 pm. This event is organized by the Victoria Handweavers’ and Spinners’ Guild to bring together spinners and fibre producers for a day of spinning, conversation, and inspiration. Guild and non-Guild spinners are welcome, and knitters are welcome too.

This year the Spin-In will held at the Esquimalt Gorge Pavilion in Esquimalt Gorge Park at 1070 Tillicum Rd, Victoria. There is ample free parking. There are also 4 EV charging stations and bike racks. If you need a break from spinning, you can take a stroll in the beautiful Japanese Gardens or along the Gorge.

As usual, bring your lunch and a mug as well as your wheel and fibre. There will be coffee, tea, and snacks, Sam Talks, a Show-But-No-Tell table, door prizes and great vendors. We have a few other ideas as well so keep checking our website.

Sam Talks

A Sam Talk is a brief talk about a topic useful to spinners. Past talks have included Spinning Boucle Yarn, trying different spinning wheels, Kim Mckenna’s Helpful Plying Method, and Sheep Breeds and Their Fleeces. If you would like to offer a half-hour talk or demonstration about some aspect of spinning, please contact us at spinin@vhwsg.ca

Show-But-No-Tell Table

Bring your beautiful handmade articles to display to other spinners. From skeins to finished articles, they are all welcome. Please label your articles with your name and guild so others can find you if they have questions or want to congratulate you on a fine job–or in case you forget to collect your work at the end of the day. We want to be sure it gets back to you.

Registration information, the registration fee, and the vendors to be announced. Keep checking the guild website at vhwsg.ca/activities/spin-in for more information.
