Spinzilla 2016 Prize Winners

Posted By Spinzilla Committee, Thursday, October 20, 2016
Updated: Monday, May 1, 2017

One of Spinzilla's goals is to spin enough yarn to go around the world. Every yard spun gets us closer to that goal!First of all, on behalf of the Spinzilla Committee, I'd like to mention that everyone involved with the event is a winner, big time. Each spinner spinning each yard towards a common goal, every Team Captain cheering on their team, and all of the generous sponsors and prize donors are all stars in the Spinzilla sky! A huge THANKS to one and all!

Part of what makes this event so fun are the prizes! So many spinning-related companies stepped up to donate the $25 gift certificates, and to fill the prize baskets for the rogue and team individuals who spun the most. We hope that our spinners will reward the generosity of these and our other sponsors with their patronage. These are small companies who love the fiber arts just like the rest of us.

All of the winners and prize donors have already received emails from to enable prize redemption to begin. If you see your name on this list and did not get an email, please first check your spam folder, and if you still do not see it, please email me at I make every effort to get this prize part right, and it is a lot of data to wrangle in just a couple days.

So, here is the Prize Winners Listing--

Team Louet is a repeat winner this year, with a total of 296,849 yards. They will receive the Golden Niddy Noddy, bragging rights for another year, and each team member gets a $25 gift certificate from one of our wonderful prize donors.
