The news has been creeping out slowly, and if you’ve heard the rumor, it’s true. Spinzilla is no more.
For a variety of reasons The National Needlework Association has decided to discontinue Spinzilla. Here’s the official announcement from TNNA.
I’ve participated many years, it’s always been fun to spin and just as fun to watch everyone else spin on the years I couldn’t squeeze it in. I do appreciate that TNNA recognized that it hasn’t been running as smoothly as it should.
What will you and your spinners do instead of Spinzilla?
How is your Tour de Fleece spinning going? There’s only a week left. If your enthusiasm is flagging, maybe you need some visual inspiration. Instagram is my favorite place to look at all the amazing spins. I follow #tourdefleece2019 and #tourdefleece Tell me what you are spinning for the TdF!
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.
