Personal Stories Contest Winners Announced!

We want to thank you all so much for giving us the opportunity to consider your stories for our 2016 ad campaign. We had over 49 entries, and all of them showed us what a rich and vibrant community surrounds us.

We were teary eyed by some stories,┬átickled by others, and deeply impressed with how weaving and spinning have affected your lives. We will be publishing stories from our winners and runner ups over the next few weeks, and we think you’ll understand how we felt when reading these very personal stories.
