sal.JPGThe Sunday Spin-a-Long

All you ever wanted in a spinning club!

Each fortnight (or so) I will post a tutorial introducing a new technique. Mostly, fibre used will be something you can find in your stash, if there’s something special coming up I’ll give you advance warning. No-one needs an excuse for a little stash enhancement anyway do they ;-)

You will have a couple of Sundays (or whichever day suits) to have a go at the technique, snap some snaps, and send me your feedback. Each feedback entry I receive, including a photo and brief comment, will go in the draw to win a fibrey prize at the end of the fortnight. Photos and comments will be published in a gallery so you can check out everyone else’s work!

For the grand opening: For every participant’s entry received for the first instalment of SSAL I will personally donate £1 to Tricoteuses sans Frontieres.

This is my chosen charity of the year and it will pop up every now and again in SSAL and on other places in my business. Please tell your spinning friends - I guarantee that there is much to be learned, but with no pressure, lots of fun and free goodies thrown in.

Edited To Add - I have closed comments on this post as it’s getting spammed. Feel free to comment elsewhere.

    Hi Diane,
    I would love to participate in the spin-along and learn new techniques each week, and the bonus of a possible free prize is always welcome!

  2. Mum says:

    What a great idea! I will spread the word this side of the world.

  3. Allena says:

    This sounds really neat. Since you will be writing them up anyway, why not submitt them to S&W? We are getting quite a bit of traffic, t could really get people involved.


  4. Lizette says:

    This is a great idea! I would love to spin-a-long on Sunday or any day. I’ll let my fiber friends know about this.

    Such a good idea! I’m a beginning spinner too and I can’t wait to learn new stuff!

  15. Carol says:

    It will be fun to see what everyone is doing!

  16. Fi says:

    Super Idea…I’ll join in when I can too (weekends in the summer tend to get filled up with music and festivals!).

  17. Gill says:

    What a great idea - heard about it from Cast On with Brenda! I’ve only just started spinning with a drop spindle, but keen to learn!

  18. Jeanne says:

    I also heard about this on Cast On, and would love to join! I spin on a wheel, but can definitely use some lessons…what a great idea - thank you for putting this together!

    I heard about this on Cast - On, and will mention it on my blog as well. I’d love to be part of this!

    We’re all ready when you are. Can’t wait.

    I would love to try this! I learned to spin some time ago, but I’m mostly self-taught and this sounds great for both learning and getting me to practice!

  22. Pat (quiltnut) says:

    I can’t wait for things to start. I have a little knowledge of spinning but anxious to expand my horizons.

  23. Maria says:

    Fabulous idea! I’ll definitely pass this info along. Thank you :)

  24. Toni Friedman says:

    This came at the right time. I just returned to spinning after a 9 year break. I’m looking forward to it.
