Spinzilla is an annual (friendly) spinning competition where teams compete to see who can spin the most! Are you in?
Team Louet has won the past two years in a row! Whoa, go team!
Want to spin with us? Registration is September 1st at 9am. To register, hop on over to the registration page (be on time!) and sign up.
If being part of a team isn’t for you (or if your fave team fills up), you can ‘Spin Rogue’! It’s a great time to set your own personal goals and have fun!
So, let’s get ready for that MONSTER week of spinning!
Our team captain has been making rolags with the Louet Blending Board!
Spinzilla kicks off today, and we’re pretty excited about this year’s group of spinners for Team Louet North America! Here’s the scoop on this year’s event:
- Spinning began at 12:01 AM this morning (in each spinner’s time zone).
- Spinning ends at 11:59 PM on October 11 (in each spinner’s time zone).
- Each team members’ yardage and finished yarn photo must be submitted to the Team Captain, who must submit each person’s results by 11:59 PM EDT on October 14.
After the results are in, we’ll be awarding the following prizes to our own team:
Team Thank-You: Everyone who turns in their final yardage at the close of Spinzilla will receive a thank-you gift valued at $100! We’ll be creating a special fiber pack for our hard-working spinners which includes two 1/2 lb. bags of Merino Silk, a 1/2 lb. bag of Dyed Merino and a Lavishea Spinzilla lotion bar!
Monster Mile Club: Each person who spins a mile of yarn (1760 yards) during Spinzilla will win their choice of in-stock fibers valued at $100 – plus they will get a special badge they can add to their Ravelry profile, blog, or website!
Top 3 Spinners by Yardage: We’ll be awarding $300 worth of in-stock spinning fibers (winner’s choice!) to our top 3 spinners who report the most yardage for our team at the close of Spinzilla!
No matter what happens, we’re are honored to be a part of the 1,500+ spinners participating in this year’s event. 100% of the registration fee from each and every spinner benefits the Needlearts Mentoring Program (NAMP) to provide interested NAMP programs with spinning and weaving equipment and fiber (click here to learn more).
Best of luck to all spinners this week!
