In our last post we talked about the Needle Arts Mentoring Program and the real meaning of Spinzilla. This time we want to talk about the businesses who make this all possible. Spinzilla has grown exponentially over the years, and we quite literally could not have kept it going without the generous support of our sponsors.
Through the growth of Spinzilla we are able to serve more mentors to serve more kids and make a special place in their hearts for the needlearts. Our sponsor spots sold out quickly this year, with many companies pledging their support before the 2015 Spinzilla season ended.
Yak Sponsors–The yak is the largest animal in the Spinzilla stable and our 3 Yak sponsors have stepped up big to bring you this event.
The Woolery returns for the 3rd year in a row as our retail Yak sponsor. They have so many tools and supplies, as well as a wealth of knowledge for how to use them.
Also, returning for its 3rd year, SpinOff is our major media Yak sponsor. Start your Spinzilla training right with some of their free downloadable tutorials!
And new for this year is Kromski North America. Kromski is a family business that started almost 100 years ago!
Bison Sponsors–Our next biggest sponsor animals are our Bison sponsors. These wholesale companies are all household names for fiber enthusiasts.
Louet North America (Last year’s winning team!)
We will be featuring our Yak and Bison Sponsors in our blog tour this year and watch our blog for an interview series with these companies.
Merino Sponsors–Most fiber artists have heard of Merino and that is the name of our next level sponsors. If you haven’t heard of our sponsors Happy Fuzzy Yarn, Maine Top Mill, Manos, Sweet Georgia Yarns, Treenway Silks, and Unicorn Fibre, do yourself a favor and check them out!
All of the sponsors above will be offering Spinzilla specials to you, our spintastic spinners! Go check out our official Ravelry sponsor special thread to see what they are offering.
We also have many companies we call our Cotton Boll sponsors. They will be donating ten $25 gift certificate prizes to the prize pool. This is one of the things that keeps Spinzilla fun. For a complete and updated list of our sponsors, make sure to check out the sponsors page on our website.
A huge roar of thanks to all of our 2016 sponsors!
