Collectively Spinzilla spinners spun 3,983,286.18  yards of yarn and raised over $13,000 for the spinners of tomorrow.  881 spinners joined the Monster Mile Club! We heard from so many of you that you spun far more than you thought you could and that your spinning skills got better. Thank you for your participation and your good cheer.  Here is what just of a few of you had to say

“As someone who’s only been spinning for eight months, Spinzilla seemed like a bit of a crazy idea . . . but I’m so pleased with how I did.” –Katrina S

“Wasn’t that a lot of fun! I had a great time and ended exhausted like the rest of us . . . It didn’t matter how much you spun, the important thing was participating round the world.”–Carol E

“Truly the best yarn I’ve ever spun! Six days of nonstop spinning will make you better.” –Michelle S
