What are you doing this Sunday? Oh, just spinning for charity…

April 23rd, 2013 § 0 comments

This Sunday, April 28th, I will be participating in a charity event that benefits the PACE Society.  Originally, I was going to knit some cotton hats & some fingerless mitts etc to sell at the show but I had to get honest about what was going on in my life lately.  That is, I’ve been experiencing high levels of stress which has been interacting with chronic pain to make me a rather unproductive knitter lately.  I came clean with my friend Ryan (who is running the event) about how I’ve been feeling but I wanted to still contribute to the charity event in some other format.

So I meditated and came up with this idea: to spin for PACE.

Basically, for every dollar donated in my “Spin for PACE” jar, I will spin yarn on my spinning wheel for 2 minutes. I thought this would be a cool idea as its interactive, I can do some quick “teaching” about how the wheel works, and I can demonstrate how yarn is made.  Pretty cool eh?  I may incorporate this into other charity events in future as I think its a good idea.  100% of the proceeds from the spinning will be going to PACE.  I will also have some handspun yarns for sale at the event with 30% proceeds going to PACE – so come on by and help support this awesome local charity!
