Crafters enjoy fiber art products at annual Wisconsin Spin-In

WAUKESHA (WITI) -- The annual Wisconsin Spin-In was held at the Waukesha Expo Center on Saturday, March 29th. The event celebrates fiber art products with equipment and strategies on display.

"We have everything here from raw fleece all the way through dyes," said organizer Luci Williams. "During the 60's movement, spinning really kicked on again, and then it lulled out a little, but now it's coming back to the land again. So that's what we're here to do is pass that on."

Those in attendance appreciate the efficiency of the event, as many vendors don't have fixed stores.

"It's hard to find a lot of the items and so it's great when everybody comes together and you just have one-stop shopping," said Barbara Guidinger. "It's nice to share what you're interested in."

One vendor, Sheri Klink, is vision impaired and says the event is a wonderful experience for her and her booth.

"The crafting community was so much more accepting of who I am," said Klink. "Everybody here enjoys what they do. You can see it in their work, you know, how much they love creating their product."
