The Ontario Handspinning Seminar is Ontario's annual three day gathering for spinners. Founded in 1964, the Seminar provides a location for spinners of all levels of experience to meet, take workshops, share their work, learn new techniques, shop and be inspired by each other. The Seminar moves around the Province to allow easy access for all. Each year the organizing committee selects a theme for the event and all workshops and activities focus on this main idea. Most importantly, the Ontario Handspinning Seminar brings together our community of spinners for a weekend of sharing, creativity and collaboration.
