Spinzilla 2014 Final Tally
November 15, 2014Benjamin has spent the better part of a two days measuring the yarn, and fielding e-mails from our “off-site” spinners. We are finally ready to announce our final yardage for Spinzilla! 61,671 yards!!!
All the yarn from our “Schacht-based” spinners!
That is 35.04 miles, or more than enough yarn to reach from us to the Denver Art Museum, where 5 teams (including ours) spent Sunday the 12th spinning until our bobbins were full. Over 70 spinners showed up to this event, which was a major hit with the patrons of the museum.
For our team, the spinner who spun the most yardage was Denise Renee Grace. She spun 7,032 yards (~4 miles) of yarn using all four of her wheels!
Here is a closer look at everybody’s yarn.
