It’s back! The Spinning Rendezvous is having a Revival: June 7-9, 2019 at the Ranch!

This is a great opportunity for folks who enjoy working with wool and other fibers to get together and create new -things while chit-chatting with others who share the same passion.

New to the fine art of spinning? JOIN US! This is a great way to learn new tricks from those that have some more experience.

Oh, and did I mention that this is all happening at Stehekin Valley Ranch – where fabulous vistas and amazing food abound! It just doesn’t get any better than that!!

Molly Gerhard is organizing this year’s Rendezvous, which will feature a sheep-to-shawl project for participants to help with. Anyone that helps with the project will be entered in a raffle to take home the finish shawl at the end of the weekend. How fun!

Have we piqued your interest? Read on for the full low-down on what the weekend entails and how to reserve your spot. Hope to see you here!

Stehekin Spinning Rendezvous Revival
June 7, 8, and 9, 2019

Join us for the revival of the Stehekin Spinning Rendezvous!

Three ways to play:

  1. Join the sheep-to-shawl spinners. Dyed roving will be provided for a shawl. All shawl participants will have their names in a drawing for a chance to win the finished shawl.
  2. Free spinning. Bring your own projects and spin, spin, spin! It is possible we may have spinning-fiber vendors. (We are still working on this.) If you are interested in being a vendor, please email Molly Gerhard at mollygerhard@gmail.com
  3. Bring your show and tell to inspire others.

Registration is $5 payable at the Rendezvous.

In addition to spinning, there are hiking trails, nature walks, and ample opportunities for other mountain and lake recreation pursuits.
