and guild meetings with speeches but no times to just get together and spin.
I had always wanted to do something for St. Distaff Day and it happened that
I mentioned it to someone at the town museum and the event was born. The
first year there were 2 of us but since then there has been a growing number
who come to spin, snack and enjoy each other's company. Same deal with the
Spinning Bee. I pay out of my own pocket for the little things for door
prizes and invite vendors to come for free to the spinning bee in exchange
for an item for the silent auction. The money from the auction goes to the
hosting site so we can pay our way. So, when you need a good event to
celebrate your craft---just do it!
Oh, it wasn't me at the Strawberry Festival, that is someone else in town.
