A Pile’O Hi-Los
With Spinzilla right around the corner (Oct. 7-13) and the Flood behind us, we at Schacht Spindle Company are ready to hit the treadles and fill those bobbins. Our Schacht Team spent an hour last Thursday teaching some of our employees how to spin on a drop spindle. Our team is brimming with enthusiasm to pile the yardage on! Most of the company is participating; even Barry picked up his drop spindle. Our new spinners are already catching on to the spindle and are spinning yards of yarn; they will be well-prepared for battle in the week to come.
Half of the team spinning.
We are thrilled that this event has inspired many people to pick up a spindle and spin. We hope to infuse the future generation with the passion for creating yarn.
We will be holding “help” sessions for our new spinners throughout this week to prime them for the big event next week.
We are excited to dive into our fiber and exhaust our “collections.” However it is certain that we will fill up on more fiber immediately after the event is over.
Spin, Spin, Spin!
