Yes Spinderellas, why should knitters and hookers have all the fun? We deserve our own day to let our craft shine!

World Wide SPIN in Public Day is Saturday Sept 15, 2012

Spinners know a thing or two about DIY (Do It Yourself). Here is your handy guide to having a wonderful WWSIP Day.

Step 1: Find a local event, or dont be shy about organizing your own.
Step 2: Tell all your fiber-loving friends, and even the non-fiber-loving ones about WWSIP Day.
Step 3: On Saturday 09.15.12, shine up your wheel or drop spindle and prepare to show her off.
Step 4: Have a fun fiber-filled day with other spinners. Dazzle passersby with your craft and maybe teach a newbie a few basic techniques.
Step 5: Take home the lovely handspun yarn you made. Enjoy the envious glances and longing looks.

Spinners, fiber shop and LYS owners hosting an event, plug it here.
Spinning and other other Fiber Arts Guilds, post it up.

Spread the word.

I also created a Ravelry group here: http://www.ravelry.com/groups/2012-wwsip-day also spininpublic.com has a website with more info

Get your spin on!

EDIT:  Updated info for 2012

Very cool. I came across a lady that works at Joann's today who said she really wanted to learn to spin. People are out there who are interested. Smiley

I'll do it! I've spun in semi-public before (in front of co-workers, but not at large in the world) so I'm excited at the prospect. I might even buy a new spindle in honor of the day!  Cheesy

You know, my husband cleared his calender for me to take a weaving class that day but I don't think I'll be able to take the class (can't leave Jo for 7 hours) so I may just steal away for a couple hours and spin at the Farmer's Market that day. I mean, why not, right?
