Calling All Spinners ~ It's Time to Join the Revolution!
"...spinning right now has entered an active phase so it's not only a craft but it's a movement. Spinners are moving the craft, pushing it's boundaries, changing it's form as well as it's purpose and this is happening because we're all doing it together."
"THE REVOLUTION IS HERE" writes pluckyfluff; the creative mind behind this fantastic project. Here's what she plans to do:
"I want to take a yarn from every single spinner out there willing and connect them all into one single continuous strand. One yarn made from many. An example of our collective individuality culminating into a single beautiful whole. Which is exactly what the Handspun Revolution is. It's all of us spinning our own completely unique creations and allowing those ideas to absorb into the craft as a whole. We are all working on one giant worldwide yarn all the time if you think about it like that, as knowledge being created and shared. You in?"
OK, enough with the quoting. I just have to say that I'm totally in! I love this idea and I'm excited to be a part of it! For more details including where to send your handspun skein of yarn, head over to pluckyfluff1's LiveJournal. There is also a Contributor's Ravelry Group. The deadline for submissions is March 1st, so start spinning
