Spin in Public – Thank You!

Worldwide Spin in Public Day

Saturday, September 17, from 10 am to 2 pm

Cortes Island Museum would like to thank our fibre artists in our community that joined us Saturday, September 17, 2022, as we gathered in the Heritage Garden of the Cortes Island Museum for the last of this summer season creative event. We celebrated the art of spinning yarn for the Worldwide Spin in Public Day. We had many participants who brought their spinning wheels and their knitting. We laughed, chatted, drank tea and enjoyed some delicious treats. The weather was perfect and it was a wonderful day of yarn enthusiasts gathering.

Worldwide Spin In Public Day happens every year on the third Saturday in September. This is a world-wide event, created to share the art of spinning fibre into yarn. Come view a range of different techniques, from drop spindle to spinning wheel, drum carding raw fibre, knitting and so much more! We will have extra wheels for folks to try, yarn for sale, treats and beverages. Join us in the Heritage Garden at the Cortes Museum to celebrate the brilliant art of spinning fibre into yarn, learn, try it out, ask questions or just come and observe an art form that has been around for centuries.
