Spinzilla Event at the DAM

Spinzilla at the Denver Art Museum

Once again, Schacht is hosting this wonderful event at the Denver Art Museum. Bring your wheel and fiber to the 5th annual Spinzilla spin-in at the museum on Sunday, October 8th, 2017 between 10:30 am and 3:30 pm and join other spinners who are participating in Spinzilla. Doors will open at 10:00 am. Even if you’re not on a Spinzilla team, you are invited to spin along in celebration of Spinning and Weaving Week.

Spinzilla is a fundraiser that promotes and supports fiber arts education for youth in America. In 2014 Spinzilla went global, and has continued to grow on both the domestic and international level. Spinzilla brings people together from all over the world.

Last year we had over 100 spinners which was a lot of fun and made for a wonderful community event. We hope you’ll join us. We are grateful to the Denver Art Museum for hosting us again this year—especially just before this wing closes for renovations.

When you arrive at the museum:
Go to the main entrance of the NORTH building, and proceed to PONTI HALL.
Check in at the table there and you’ll be given a complimentary admission sticker to for the museum. This will allow you to visit any gallery on your breaks. Then you’re free to set up and get spinning!

Some rules for the event:
There is no entrance charge for people participating in Spinzilla or demonstrating (this includes guests of spinners).
Chairs will be available in Ponti Hall, as well as a few tables for display, organization, and business information.
Lockers are available at the entrance to store your valuables.
Bring only clean fiber, as care needs to be taken not to introduce wool pests into the museum environment. Please bring as little equipment as possible; wheels, bobbins, niddy noddy, fiber.
If you’ll be spending all day at the museum, you can bring your lunch with you or go to any of the delicious restaurants nearby.

Please RSVP by October 1st to make sure that your name is on the list.
