Are you ready for a handspinner's holiday? St. Distaff's Day, also called Rock Day, is just a few weeks away, and guilds, groups, and local fiber shops are starting to plan and organize events. Some groups have large events, complete with vendors and workshops, while others spend a casual day together spinning. Either way, baked goods typically play an important role in the festivities!
January 7th, traditionally observed as St. Distaff's Day, signified the end of the holiday season and a return to work (including spinning) following Christmas. For most modern spinners, our craft is often a source of joy and camaraderie—how lucky we are!
