The first Tuesday of October, the Warkworth Spinning and Weaving Guild put on the Spin In in Campbellford, ON. I have attended several times since I started spinning in 2009 and this year was no exception.
A group of 5 of us piled into Jennifer B's van for the trip.
We arrived about 1/2 hour after the event started but fortunately, Jennifer W. saved seats for us as she had arrived on time from Cobourg.
There were about 80 of us in attendance. Around the periphery of the church hall were several vendors of almost anything related to spinning: fleeces, rovings, equipment, magazines, dyes, etc.
People wishing to sell spinning wheels put them on the stage on display.
To my left is Donna, then Jennifer B. and our newest spinning friend, Alexa.
a drive in the country. Being amidst so many spinners is so inspiring and nice to be among like-minded people.
On our way home, we stopped into 1 Stop Alpacas to check out her wares, then visited the alpacas at Alexa's alpaca farm.
We are looking forward to next year's event and hope to attend The Gathering in Port Hope next April as well.
