Constance and I were invited to a “Spin-in” on the weekend – it was a lovely sunny day between storms and we were delighted to go on an outing. The sanctuary space at St Mary’s Church in Metchosin was packed with two double rows of people spinning on either side of a centre aisle. The atmosphere was truly divine with spinning wheels whirring, people chattering, cups of tea floating back and forth, babies, grannies – my idea of heaven certainly!
Watching people spin for too long can make one dizzy. Fortunately the church basement was occupied by vendors selling bales and bags and braids of wool. Constance sat to rest a while among the drop spindles at the Knotty By Nature Table. We left with a large churro fleece prepared by the Qualicum Bay Fibre Works and a bag of gorgeous black icelandic fleece from Tideview Farm!
Sounds like a place I’d like to visit!
Victoria is filled with knitters and spinners and weavers….It is well worth a visit! I have never been to Texas!
Well, come on down!
that would have been a wonderous thing to see!!! It just sounds so soul satisfying. I am sure you and Constance enjoyed it greatly!
I enjoyed the outing with the family, and the humming atmosphere of friendly spinners, but I am a weaver really.
This photograph of Constance among the drop spindles is amazing. My hittys and I don’t think we will ever see
anything like this. Thanks Constance – we love your adventures.
We love adventures and are happy that you enjoy ours.
Spinning can be so relaxing, I’m glad you enjoyed it!
I was an admirer this time! It was a very admirable group of people altogether!
What a wonderful adventure you’ve been on! Thanks for sharing!
I think we aren’t dizzy any more!
