Go, go Spinzilla!
Go, go Spinzilla!

Spinzilla is October 5-11, 2015. It’s a fun, friendly spinning competition that benefits The National Needlework Association’s NeedleArts Mentoring Program that teaches kids needle arts. The cost to join a team is $10 and 100% goes to the mentoring program.

This year there are 67 teams to choose from. Sign ups are today through October 2 on the registration page.

Knitty does not have a team this year, but I am co-captaining the Storey Publishing team with Beth Smith.

Beth and me, always causing trouble.

Jillian is the​ author of the best-selling spinning book Yarnitecture. She is the editor​ of Knittyspin and Developmental Editor for PLY and PLY Books. She kinda loves this spinning thing and wants everyone who spins to love it too, so she teaches and writes a lot. She knits, weaves, and stitches and tries to do as much of it as she can with handspun yarn. She's always cooking up all kinds of exciting and creative things combining fiber arts. She likes her mysteries British, her walks woodsy, and to spend as much time as she can laughing. Spy on her on her website jillianmoreno.com
