A Farm to Fiber Arts Experience!
How can Guilds participate?
Consider having a meet up virtually as a zoom event prior to TFF 2020. Get your guild members excited with demos, q & a’s, internal challenges that help push your spinners forward. This is about fellowship and virtual high five. If you are affiliated with a yarn shop, weaving studio or fiber arts studio, then consider the next opportunity.
How can yarn shops, weaving studios and fiber arts studios participate?
We are including the various types of meet up places where products are sold and classes are taught. As a shop owner you could come up with a unique color way for spinning fiber that is special for Texas Fleece & Fiber Festival. You can promote your “team” colors, have a cool nickname, create internal team challenges that get your customers pepped up.
How can spinning instructors or team leaders participate?
Upload demo videos or visual aids with typed details to the Big State of Texas spin along group. Alternate options are to post links to your youtube channel to specific spinning videos. The BSTSA will be an annual event in our Homestead. Every year we will try to add other ways to educate and participate.
First, that's kind of a mouthful there. TBSTSA is the brain child of Dawn Ortega in response to the number of Guilds who were founded on fellowship and education. Traditionally fiber festivals will host a fleece to shawl event where participants are competing as teams. TFF is taking it down a notch to a more laid back version where you can choose to challenge yourself, but we really just want you to join us on the front porch to spin.
