Up and Running …

We had exactly the right number of volunteers for the event. John’s daughter, Jenn, and Jessica the Mad Spindler helped out by folding programs in the lessons tent …

Everyone lent a hand to carrying wheels into the tent. Sorry no photos of the tent going up — John and I were the only tent crew, so it was rather difficult to hammer in stakes and snap photos at the same time.

By the time all the wheels were in, John was ready for a break (or, actually, just collapsed amid a sea of Canadian Production Wheels …) …

Just behind John is the area set up for experienced spinners to try out a real wheel:

Regrettably, I did not get a good shot of the Timbertops Beaver wheel hiding behind the Reeves 30″ Saxony with right-hand drive, both courtesy of Ravelry’s own pgithens. Pati was in our beginner’s spinners tent, showing her daughter, Taryn, the finer points of drop spindling. See that? It’s called a slub …

Jessica the Mad Spindler spindles away ….

And, yes, I know … where are the wheels?
