An Open Letter to Spinzilla

Dear Spinzilla,

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for holding this contest.  Without it, I may never have spun hours or learned all the lessons I have!  This was what I needed to make me consistent in spinning fiber on my drop spindle.

This was my first time taking part in the Spinzilla contest and I learned more than I can put into words (and my family did too!).  Every day I posted one lesson I learned about spinning.  It has been wonderful to learn about fiber and spinning.  I am looking forward to receiving a spinning wheel my Aunt is giving me as a result of the challenge I undertook!  I can hardly wait to learn how to spin a wheel!

I noticed something interesting as I took my spinning everywhere I went…I was always asked what I was doing!  I would tell my friends and they were always interested in trying it out.  I have decided what I want to do is to teach my friends how to spin with the spindle.  My sister, who is 5 years-old is learning to spin, so I know I can teach it. I think you should learn to spin before you are an adult.  My plan is to hold camps this summer and we will make spindles, make Niddy-Noddy’s, then we will learn to spin. We will need to hold a few fundraisers too, so we can purchase the roving.  Summer is going to be full of teaching and spinning so that we can have an entire team next year to participate in Spinzilla 2017.

Thank you Spinzilla!  It was a great experience for me and I look forward to teaching others with the inspiration you have given me.

  1. I was so very proud of you during Spinzilla, and continue to be very proud of your accomplishments! You are creative and determined, and you have such a way with words. I can hardly wait to teach you how to use the wheel when you come to visit. While we were at SAFF, we thought of you often. We saw tables and tables of beautiful drop spindles and so much colorful fiber, it made us drool. You can research fiber festivals near you and see if you can get to one in the spring. You would enjoy it, I am sure! Keep up the spinning so the next time you visit, you’ll be a drop spindle master and you’ll be showing me how you use it. In the meantime, Kit is still getting some upgrades before she goes home with you.
