"Spin-In Iowa" event held outside Newton was a great success.  The Fiber Art Shoppe was a vendor and brought a trailer load of spinning wheels for participants to try.   We supplied equipment and assistance at the fiber bar where you could try your hand at carding batts and creating rolags on a blending board.
