Vendor space will be in the PoolCourt Room as it was in 2010. Please contact Louise or me by e-mail or phone for more details if you are interested in coming as a vendor.

As usual, we will set up and start spinning late Friday afternoon and continue until just before lunch on Sunday. We will post a timetable and activity details in the coming months but we are planning a MAD HATTER FASHION SHOW for Saturday evening so you can start spinning and checking for hat ideas!
There will be a short introductory session for new spinners on Saturday morning but we HIGHLY recommend that any beginners come with equipment and at least a bit of practice in forming yarn.
Your $135.00 covers all spinning activities and meals (including taxes and tips!) beginning with snacks and a glass of wine or beer on Friday evening to breakfast on Sunday morning. There will be a sit-down banquet Saturday evening.
If anyone wants lunch on Sunday before leaving, please let the hotel know in advance since they are officially closed for the season that weekend and all meals are being prepared specifically for our group. This means that all non-spinners must be registered with us in order to eat at the hotel.
There is no elevator in the hotel so if mobility is an issue mention it when booking your room.
Remember, you are on your own for supper Friday evening.
Happy spring spinning!
