Congratulations to all of the spinners around the country who participated in Spinzilla! We can’t wait to hear from all of the other teams out there.
Spinzilla was a huge success for us here at Schacht Spindle Company, where nearly half of our team was comprised of brand new spinners. 11 out of our 25 spinners were BRAND NEW and had never spun before. This makes us so proud and gives us hope for the future of the craft. It is so amazing to us that so many people were drawn to spinning, and a few of them are so excited about it that they have chosen to buy their own wheels. All of our spinners progressed in their skills and refined their techniques as the week went on. Many of us spun more in the last week than we did all year long. Our experienced spinners remarked that it was wonderful to teach people how to spin and finally see it click.
