Worldwide Spin in Public DayBudapest and Baltimore
Worldwide Spin in Public Day (WWSIP) brings handspinners out into public spaces each year to celebrate and share their craft. Here are two more talented fiber artists who joined their spinning friends for WWSIP events on September 20, 2014.

Budapest, Hungary—Anett Veg
Anett Veg, a spinner, knitter, and dyer, is frequently seen plying her fiber-art skills in Hungary. Whether at folk festivals or on the train, her love of fiber is often in the public view. On September 20, she and her spinning friends gathered in a café in Budapest in the shadow of St. Stephen's Basilica. Among the happy spinners was her friend Adrienn Horváth, who helps to host the semi-annual Day of Wool event in Budapest. See more pictures of their WWSIP event on Anett's blog—The Crafty Side of Life.

Baltimore, Maryland, USA—Christiane Knight
Christiane is the owner of Threeravens Yarn and Fiber Studio—which is as famous for its giant, handmade size 50 knitting needles as it is for its colorful, joyful style. For the last few years on WWSIP Day, she has gathered her spinning friends and set to work just outside of the studio, which is also home to Lovelyarns, in Baltimore. Hampdenfest, an annual street festival held locally, coincided with WWSIP, so many folks were out and about. Christiane said, "We had a blast—we even had our own concert, as one of the band stages for Hampdenfest was right across the street. Here's a BIG thanks to all who came out and spun or knit with us!"
