ID:	51843 I know this seems incredibly early, but for such a great event, we need to start thinking ahead. We had a really fantastic Spin de Fleece 2019, even though we had just started up a brand new site (and even switched names of the site) and I have a feeling all you lurking spinners are just waiting for this to start up again!

    A couple of things to be aware of--Tour de France has been postponed from the planned June 27th start date to starting on August 29th. The original run dates were June 27 to July 19, but now it has been rescheduled to August 27 to September 20. So the question is--do you want to hold 2nd annual Spin de Fleece on June 27-July 19 OR August 27 to September 20? We will not do both, but it definitely was fun last year to have all the prizes and see what everyone was spinning!!

    The benefit of coinciding with the actual Tour de France event is that you can watch the daily progress of the cyclists and maybe some bonus points for watching while you spin! But maybe everyone's schedule is too crazy for August-Sep dates and you can't make it. So I'm throwing out a poll to get your preferences.

    Let's get those wheels oiled and "warmed up" and start prepping your stash for a productive spinning season!!

    Has anything been decided on this year’s Spin de fleece? I am sure FiberKind can come up with something to contribute as a prize.
    Knitting is happening here! ❤️

      Thanks for the reminder! So far we've only had 1 vote for the early date and none for the 2nd date, but it sounds like the majority will be flexible. To be honest, it would suit me better during the Aug-Sep. event since I'm not sure what our summer will be like. But it does look like we have some interest!!

      As I am scouring and prepping I will have a big heap o' wool to spin by the second date - so that is fine - I do want to spin for a longer-term project unlike previous events in which I spun random stuff.

    Carlota, I might be joining you since I have a Shetland fleece to spin. This would give me more time to get that prepped since I haven't even washed it yet. I was planning to do it soon, but I'm in FL now taking care of my mom for a week. She was in the hospital from blood blots on her lungs, but she is mending well and I'll be flying home on Friday, so I'm wanting to get at it and get it combed! And I would love to spin it all up and make it into a sweater, so maybe that will be my project this year.

      Oh my goodness, you have had quite a time of it - I'm glad she is doing okay - and I'm sure your being there means all the world to her. Such a complicated time to be traveling and undergoing treatments so that is a lot for both of you.

      It's good to have a monumental project ahead I think - makes me cut loose some lesser project temptations.

      Thanks, yes, she is making good progress. We actually went out to eat last evening at a local restaurant that was mostly empty, so the only person we came in close contact with was our waitress. Mom did really well, although she walks pretty slow.

      Planning to fly home Friday since my sister is flying down to take my place on Thursday, but if things don't settle down, I may have to extend my flight date. Praying for this rioting to end!

    Would someone be so kind as to list the general "rules" for Spin de Fleece to a new spinner?
