Call for Submissions: Spin Off Magazine Fall 2018

Taking our cue from the annual fall equipment theme, Spin Off magazine’s Fall 2018 issue examines the useful, long-lasting element of spinning. We may not spin every textile we use, but we can still create practical yarns that stand up to wear and serve a purpose.

Whether you’re spinning to clothe your family or striving for a particular effect, take a look at the tools, fibers, and techniques you reach for to make useful yarn. Also consider the equipment you couldn’t live without, whether it’s purpose-built or pressed into service.

As usual, the issue will be organized loosely around themes, but we welcome articles that don’t fit tidily into them. We may ask to hold something for a future issue, so don’t hesitate to submit what’s on your mind.
