The Peachtree Spinners (Georgia) take an active part in their state fair held at the end of September. Entries in the Fine Arts Division 2007 had more than sixty-five skeins and seventy-five finished pieces, taking three judges all day to evaluate them. At the First Annual Fair Spin-In Day in 2007, twenty-five people brought their wheels from Macon, north Florida, south Georgia, metro Atlanta, and Brunswick to create a spinning circle and kick off national Spinning and Weaving Week. This large, versatile group issues multiple challenges year-round to encourage members to explore, create, and learn new techniques. Their latest group project was “Fiber Poker.” Playing cards were made up into five suits listing a variety of colors, fibers, plying techniques, textures, and items to make. Participants had to use a minimum of four suits. Hands were drawn at their spring retreat and finished goods were due at the fall retreat. Wild cards featured their mascot pig named Scrappy, who has a long history with the guild and gives fascinating reports about her travels to fiber events in the newsletter.
