Annual Spin-In - Saturday, April 6 - Sunday, April 7, 2019
10:00 am-4:00 pm Oak Harbor High School
Please Join Us! Featured Spinner - Amelia Garripoli
Saturday – Color Wheel Magic -Colors are magic in the way they spark opinions. But if we step back and use a color wheel, we can gain some insights. The color wheel can help us choose colors, help us see what mixing colors will do, and help us explain our color choices. We will take a look at how and why we pick colors, both with a color wheel and without. I will share my color experiments along the way.
Sunday – Spin Braids Into Gold - I bet you have one (or a few) of those 4-ounce space-dyed braids in your stash that caught your eye but now you have no idea how to approach it. Bring it, your wheel/spindles, and some handcarders (if you have a pair), and see how many ways you can transform it into colorful yarn. We will explore splitting, singles, fractals, neutrals, grist, and editing braids to get the yarn of your dreams.
Two day admission $15.
Packets available for $10 (prepared by Chris Lubinski) or bring your own or purchase from vendors at the event, space-dyed fiber to spin. 2-4 oz space dyed fiber will be needed for Sunday's workshop.
Please note that there are only 100 packets available for sale. First come/first served.
