Spinning In Public at Artful Sunday

This year the Greater Vancouver Weavers and Spinners Guild was asked to come on out and demonstrate their talents at the Artful Sunday event at Britannia Community Center along Commercial Drive.  On August 26th 2012, on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, we hauled out our spinning wheels, charkhas, looms, and drop spindles and set up under a wonderful blue sky and crisp white tent generously provided for us by the Artful Sunday's organizer, Katherine.

It's always so inspiring to watch my fellow spinners at work, and I find it really satisfying to get to share my craft with complete strangers that maybe never thought that spinning yarn could still be a viable hobby now-a-days.  Commercial Drive is such an open and creative neighbourhood - we met TONS of people with looms, who knit, who play with other forms of fibre, and it was great to get to chat to everyone walking by.

I took a few photos of our day out, check them out here if you like!

I really hope we get the opportunity to go out again next year!
