Spinzilla Update September 23, 2015 – Posted in: Events


Hi Everyone – Samantha here with some more Spinzilla news. We’ve scheduled two spinning-related events at the store at the beginning of October. Read on!


Spinning is the ancient textile art in which fiber is turned into yarn – something every knitter or weaver can never have enough of!  Our spinning teacher Corinne will be hosting a crash workshop on October 4th from 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm for anyone who would like to come in and try something new!  In this course, you will learn to spin your very own yarn using a drop spindle. We will cover how to draft, spin, and wind your yarn, as well as various plying techniques and how to finish (set) it. You will also learn about choosing and working with different kinds of fiber, and the various types of drop spindles available. This workshop is open to anyone – not only those participating on our Spinzilla team.  Call us 514-486-5648 to register.

Espace Tricot Spinzilla Team 

Our Spinzilla team is filling up nicely and we’re thrilled that so many people are getting involved! We still have a few spots available for anyone who might be sitting on the fence… If you’re interested, don’t be shy to contact us with any questions!

We will be hosting a SPINZILLA KICK-OFF at the store on the evening of October 5th. All members of our spinning team are invited to come and spin with us from 6 pm to 8 pm to get the ball rolling!  There will be snacks and raffles!  All members of the team will be included in the raffle draws regardless of whether they are able to come to the store for the kick-off.  Please call (514-486-5648) or send us an e-mail to RSVP so we have an idea how many people to prepare for.

Happy spinning everyone! Get your spindles and wheels ready, it’s almost go-time 😀
