Please pass the word that the Bolivian team the Warmis Phuskadoras (Women Spinners) is in need of a TNNA sponsor for the 2018 Spinzilla Spinning Week. This is a super opportunity for a TNNA member who has an affinity for the Andean textile traditions. What better way to develop a personal relationship with rural spinners/weavers? Expenses have been met annually thanks to social media help rallying support for the team. Information about the team is archived on the blog during the months of September and October going back to the team’s first competition in 2014. All spinning is done with phuskas (drop spindles) which is a central activity in the fading rural way of life. The Warmis Phuskadoras love competing and socializing during Spinning Week.
If you are interested or would like further information, please contact Dorinda Dutcher who coordinates the team in Bolivia. firstname.lastname@example.org. Dorinda Dutcher, February 27, 2018
