What could be better than spending a sunny afternoon spinning with friends while surrounded by people who appreciate well-used tools? Members of the Medina Spinning and Weaving Guild were invited to share their love of the fiber arts at Antiques on the Square in Medina, Ohio, on June 29. Held in Medina's restored public square for the last three years, the event has now grown into the Antique Lovers Weekend. Visitors to the antiques show were connected with local museums, historical societies, and antiques dealers in the area. The John Smart House Museum and Research Center in Medina was open for tours throughout the weekend.

Guild member Nancy Page said that she and her fellow fiber artists had a nice time demonstrating at the event this year. Nancy spun on her trusty Kromski Minstrel alongside Ellen Moore and Vicky Bryg, while Rosanna Ludwig talked with visitors about knitting and Carol Thombs demonstrated nuno felting.  They had a bright, sunny spot for their tent, and lunch was provided by a local coffee shop-a happy day for any spinner.
