A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

Explaining exactly what Spinzilla is to the uninitiated is a challenge.  Spinzilla is a real-time, local, global, virtual, individual, team spinning experience. Words only take you so far. That’s why we decided to have a photo contest, to encourage spinners to share their Spinzilla moments with us, so that we in turn could share them with the world.

With over 200 entires to our photo contest, it was hard to narrow down the finalist to just a few. (For details on how the finalists were chosen and the categories go to www.spinzill.org/photo-contest.) Your creativity, humor, and fun was infectious.

Below are the winners and finalists of Spinzilla’s first contest.  All the finalists will receive a “Handspun String is Not a Theory” pin. (Watch your mailbox for your pin. Winners, we will follow up with an email next week if you haven’t already heard from us.) Over 600 votes were cast during the past week to select the winners of each category. Thank you for making Spinzilla 2014 the best one yet!

Awards of $50-$100 in fiber were generously donated by Louet North America. They are proud to offer one of the largest selections of breed-specific fibers for spinners.
