Serendipity Spinners:
Thanks Sondra for posting your Bio!
The final roster has posted and we are a complete team with 20 spinners registered.  Now the fun begins!!!!

There are several items I want to make sure you are aware of......There is a picture contest sponsored by  Spinzilla.  Check out all the details at  You can also e-mail me pictures and I will post them on the Serendipity Blog and on our Pinterest Board.

Serendipity is a Schacht vendor so we are part of the Schacht competition to spin the most yardage and win a Sidekick Spinning Wheel.  If we win the wheel will go to someone on our team!  

Ravelry is a great place for all of you to chat so log on to the Serendipityyarn page and have fun with each other.  

Remember, you are credited for singles and plied yarn.  Check out measuring on the FAQ page at  I will review measuring and submitting results tomorrow on this blog.

Thursday, October 2nd

Four days until Spinzilla begins.  Today is the day to tune-up your wheels.  Spinning at the shop is from 1 to 3.  We have wheel supplies and oil to make your wheel perform at its best.   All spinners should have lots and lots of roving on hand.  Pre-draft your bats and braids.
Today's picture is yarn I just finished using Greenwood Fibers Sock Roving.  I Navajo Plied the singles to keep the colorways close.  It is perfect for the upcoming Knit Along Cowl the Knit Club chose to do in October using a worsted weight yarn.

Hutchinson Ranch (near Salida) is having Pumpkin Patch Days Oct 11th & 12th.  They would love to have spinners on site for demonstrations.  If you are interested in participating in this fun fall event let me know and I will provide you the contact information.

Spinzilla! A Monster Event

SPINZILLA begins in just 7 days.  Our Team Serendipity Spinners are busily preparing their fiber and tuning up their spinning wheels or spindles.  We have 20 fabulous spinners raising money for the National Needle Arts Mentoring Program.  Oh wait we have one additional member......please meet
our mascot    Ewe-jean  .    Ewe-jean came to live at Serendipity Yarn & Gifts about 1 1/2 yrs ago.
Someone anonymously left Ewe-jean on the store's door step.  They knew we have two rescue Basset Hounds and thought we wouldn't mind rescuing a lost sheep.  She faithfully guards our store
and the dogs know she is not a chew toy.  Small children are encouraged to carry her around and love her.  She has now been recruited to be Team Serendipity Spinners Mascot.  To celebrate her new position Sue crochet her a hat and scarf.  Stunning!
