Spinzilla is a world-wide spinning event where competing teams and individuals challenge each other to see who can spin the most yarn in a week! Although the competition lasts only a week, many teams and individuals are already training, preparing their fiber and monstering up their spinning skills. The winning team is awarded a year’s worth of bragging rights, the traveling Golden Niddy Noddy, and $25 gift certificates for all team members! Spinzilla also offers individuals a way to participate in the Rogue Spinners category.
At its core, Spinzilla is the challenge to generate a very big number to show the yarn universe and beyond what we spinners are made of.
Spinzilla is a vehicle for individual spinners to spin more and worry less! We don’t care what kind of yarn you spin, we just want you to grab a tool, any tool, and get spinning! We need those yards! The more you spin, the better spinner you will become. Any registered spinner who spins at least a mile (1,760 yards,) is entered into a special drawing for random prizes. All spinners who register are also eligible for random prizes.
Use Spinzilla as a fun way to challenge yourself, raise some money for a good cause, enjoy the company of other spinners, and perhaps bring home a trophy for your team or yourself! Mark your calendar for our blog tour that will post on topics ranging from how to make a yarn plan to fast and easy wools to spin. Additionally, our Spinzilla blog and newsletter will include articles and tips to keep your wheels turning!
