Personal Spinzilla goal: I’ve never every participated in a spinning competition. I have no clue what to say in yards. So let’s say my goal is to spin as much and as fast as I possibly can. If I’m not at work, eating or sleeping, I’ll be spinning!
Personal bio: I grew up in the city but a cowboy stole my heart and now I’m a country girl. I live in rural Northwest Missouri on a farm with my hubby, 2 dogs and 10 horses.
As a child I hated school and was only interested in art. I’m so lucky to have parents who fostered my creative talents as I was growing up. Now I’m an art teacher. Teaching art, I’ve dabbled in every medium….fibers is the only one I’ve stuck with for any length of time. While I love to spin, knit and crochet (a little), I’m most intrigued with dyeing fiber. I’m never bored when I’m standing over the dye pot! I have a little Etsy shop…https://www.etsy.com/shop/bonfiber
So, since I’ve never played a team sport in my life, no NEVER! I’m considering this my first team experience. I’m ready to spin until I drop!
