Spinning Rendezvous 2024

2024 Stehekin Spinning Rendezvous

3 Nights: May 31-June 3, 2024

This is a great opportunity for folks who enjoy working with wool and other fibers to get together and create new things while visiting 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!!

New this year!

Stay in the coveted Ranch House! This large house with amazing views will be the base for this year’s rendezvous. The house has 3 large bedrooms – each with their own private bathroom. It also has fantastic open living space which is the perfect gathering spot for spinning and other fun projects. Two additional small cabins close to the Ranch House will be available if needed.

All meals will still be provided in the cookhouse nearby, and participants of the rendezvous are welcome to use all the public spaces and amenities of the Ranch.

Bonus: A musical group will also be staying at the Ranch this weekend, and providing a free concert on Saturday night. All are welcome to attend.

Slideshow of the 2019 Spinning Rendezvous

For 2019, we did a “Sheep to Shawl” project. We spun the yarn and then everyone took turns with the table loom to create to weave a beautiful shawl.
