Happy Ewe is going to have a team for the Tour de Fleece again this year!
For those of you who are new to it, here’s some background info. The TdF is a spinning event that happens concurrently with the Tour de France, which this year runs July 7 - July 29. You don’t need to like cycling or watch the race to take part. If you are new to spinning, this is an excellent way to gain muscle memory - with just 10 or 15 minutes a day, you’ll see lots of improvement from the first day of the Tour to the last. It’s also a great way to stash bust, or to finish that yarn that’s been on your bobbins for way too long.
This is a casual event! Spin every day that the riders ride with two rest days in the middle. On the two Tour de France challenge days, challenge yourself! Try a new technique or try to spin a certain amount of yarn. There are no set goals other than what you choose for yourself and no requirements to have your spinning all done by the 29th. Just spin!
Every Saturday of the Tour will be a Spin-In at Happy Ewe . Come by any time 10-4 and join other team members. You can also feel free to come to any of the regular groups, Tuesday nights 7-9, Thursday afternoons 2-4, and Friday afternoons 2-4. If you’re not local to us anymore or live out of the area during the summer, join anyway!
Make sure to post pictures of your spinning and your challenges on our Ravelry page and tag your spinning projects and handspun stash with tdfhappyewe2018, and all of us near and far can chat and support each other.
All official team members will receive a discount code for 15% off fibers from Happy Ewe during the Tour! Sign up today on our Ravelry page!
