Today was a day I’d been looking forward to a lot: the annual Aurora Colony Handspinners’ Guild Spin-In in Aurora, Oregon, where members of the Guild gather for a day of fellowship and you guessed it, handspinning. There were about twenty of us there today, and it was wonderful seeing all the different wheels, methods of spinning, and fiber being spun. At one point or another, most of us wandered around the room ooh-ing and ah-ing at what we saw.
I knew a few people there and got to meet more and make new friends. It was a wonderful day; Suzette and I sat next to each other with our Ladybug wheels and enjoyed the day together. It was all very relaxing and enjoyable, and now that the days are longer, I will join the Guild once a month at their meetings in Canby.
