July 2, 9, 16, 23, Sat, 3:00-5:00 pm: Tour de Fleece Spinning Bee (in person at Davis Hall) 

There will be weekly Guild Spinning Bees the month of July for Tour de Fleece. Tour de Fleece is an annual event in the fiber arts community. It follows the same timeline as the Tour de France bike race, with spinners across the globe participating. It runs from July 1 to July 24 this year. Some spinners chose to join teams that compete for the most yardage spun in a month, or participate in brand-specific spin-alongs. You can find out more in the official Tour de Fleece Ravelry group: https://www.ravelry.com/groups/tour-de-fleece

The FWSG will not have an official team, but we’ll be spinning along just for fun, and every Saturday of July we’ll be meeting to spin together in person. If you want to keep track of what you’ve spun in the month of July and measure your yardage at the end of the event, we’ll add it all up just to see how many miles of yarn the Fairbanks Guild spins during Tour de Fleece. There’s no pressure and no commitment necessary, we’re doing this purely for the love of yarn, so participate as much or as little as brings you joy this summer.
