Ontario Handspinning Seminar

Everyone is encouraged to bring an item to put into the Display!  This is an opportunity for us to exchange ideas and to indulge in a bit of “Show-and-Tell” – a chance to see what others have been working on since the last Seminar.  No matter what your level of experience, it is nice to be inspired by each other. This also is an opportunity to have a close look at items that might be in the Fashion Show.  Items on display will be eligible for the WOW award and items made from 100% handspun will be eligible for the Founders Award.

For all categories the following guidelines apply:
 

  • Seminar participants are limited to one entry per category

  • Only entries made entirely of handspun yarn are eligible for the Founders Award

  • Entries in all the categories must have been completed in the last year.

Simple 2-ply skein: Your goal is to produce a consistent, balanced yarn.

 

3 or more ply skein: Your goal is to produce a consistent, balanced yarn.

 

Novelty skein: Your goal is to construct a yarn which boasts a decorative element. This may be a spinning technique (crepe or bouclé for example) or it may consist of additions to your spun yarn (beads, feathers etc.). The choice is yours...so have fun with it.

 

Spindle-spun skein: The 2-or-more-ply yarn must be spun and plied on a hand spindle. Garments: Projects may include sweaters,

vests, jackets, shawls, etc.

 

Accessories: Projects may include hats, scarves, socks, mittens, etc.

 

Other: Projects may include dolls, tea cozies, placemats, household items, etc.
