North Carolina Tent Sale

Spinrite is MORE Than Just Yarn!

Sheri Goad

Crocheting is my addiction. I'm a mom, wife, home daycare provider, crocheter, writer, youth director, crafter and more. I like trying new things but only stick to those that I love. Life is too short to be doing things you don't love. I blog regularly at Frogging Along, and I am a Guest Blogger at Knot Just Yarn Blog for The Crochet Crowd.

    I enjoy ANYTHING written or crocheted by Mikey & The Crochet Crowd. Y’all are awesome! He’s (Mikey) has so much on his plate yet he continues to deliver, deliver and deliver some more! I really don’t think this man knows the meaning of slow down. God Bless all of you at The Crochet Crowd…I don’t physically know you but but I love you all anyway…and you make it so easy to do that! Keep the articles, newsletters, video’s, website and FB page coming…I’ll read and enjoy it all. Thanks a million!!! Anna

    I went to the yarn sale on Tuesday and we were able to go on Saturday. I drove down from Richmond VA. I got 2 big bags of yarn and thread, I haven’t counted how many balls. We combined this trip with a visit to the Sylvan Heights Bird park on Saturday(a hour away), and a quick trip to the old Washington NC and some antique stores on Tuesday. Washington NC is in Blackbeard pirate country and near the Outer Banks, so if they have this sale again combining a beach trip with a trip here is a suggestion to those who think they are too far away.

    We drove 346 miles from Charleston, SC on 9/23. We went there and back home the same day. We left out about 6:30 am made it after many stops around 2 pm and didn’t get home until after midnight. We were all worn slap out! LOL! But, finally meeting Mikey (Dan was sick that day due to his experience with the evil ghost chili pepper wings) and browsing and purchasing all the wonderful yarn made it such a great adventure! Would we do it again? Of course we would!!! But, next time we are getting a hotel! LOL 😉

    I enjoyed the sale, and meeting people. I do a lot of crocheting since the doctors took me out of work. I always liked the sales when I workrd with Caron and am so glad Spinrite and Hampton Arts had the tent sale in Washington.I am also thankful for meeting Crystal and Michelle,and finding out I could still get the Jesue latch hook kit.Thank you again for having the tent sale.

    I completely agree about the event being more than just the deals. My friend and I got there late Thursday afternoon and were back again Friday morning. Everybody connected with the sale was so friendly and helpful. We only bought 228 skeins/balls of yarn and crochet thread, but counting trip expenses, we got them for $2.35 each. And as you said, that doesn’t count the fun of being there and for us, visiting good friends on the way home.

      My thoughts exactly! No way its fair to factor in travel expenses. It feels kind of like cheating!

    Hi….I was there Saturday and it was so much fun!! You guys were a hoot and you could tell you were having so much fun!! Everybody there was so sweet!! I came just to be able to meet Mikey & Diva Dan…the yarn was just a bonus! I was only about 21/2 hours away. I’m so glad I came…everything you said is so true….Mikey & Diva Dan are the sweetest most genuine people you will ever meet!! I got a hug from both…a picture with Mikey…had a nice conversation with Diva Dan(My husband was the one with the puppy) wish I would have remembered to get a picture with Dan(Hopefully next year!) The employee’s of Spinrite were awesome!! I meet some really nice people in line! I really enjoyed the trip and the town of Washington was really nice and we enjoyed the rest of the day around town! I’m so hoping they bring it back next year!! 🙂

      *Waves Hello!* We really did have a ton of fun. High hopes it will return next year. I will be planning a longer stay and trying to hook up with more hookers while we are there. We had a little hooker night on Friday but would have been fantastic with more crowders there!

    Well said. I sadly missed getting this even this time, but I am so hoping that they decide to do it again and again so that I can go there. Loved seeing everyone pictures and hearing how much they saved on the massive amounts of yarn. 🙂

    Well written article. We feel that way about Spinrite here in Ontario, Canada too. Meet new friends, meet those we have seen commenting on “The Crochet Crowd” and of course Mikey and Diva Dan. Mikey and Dan are so great and kind…love this community!

      Thank you! It’s easy to write about something that makes you so happy! Ontario is a bit further, but it is on my list to attend too!

    I watched every day ,I have a crocheting addiction to sometimes I can’t buy yarn . My husband is a farmer so it doesn’t give us a lot of money to spend …but mikey has shown me many new things to make and the yarn sale s I can only dream of making and Dan I still feel so sorry for hope all better. Thanks again.

      I can relate 100% to the addiction. I think my family wants to use my yarn to tie me up and hold me back from going out and buying more yarn! I hope one day you’ll be able to make a sale!

    My daughter got married this past weekend so I wasn’t able to attend. I live in Indianapolis and she got married in PA. Anyway. If this was a yearly event I would love to travel to North Carolina and come to the spinrite tent sale! Please come back so I can go next year. The lady from Chicago, go to Toronto it would be a lot closer for you and you would probably get the same deals.

      Congrats to your daughter! You will not regret the trip. So much fun!

    Sounds like great fun. Unfortunately, NC, as much as I’d like to visit, is just a little too far. Which is why I’m lobbying for this event to occur in the Chicago area! We want to play, too! 🙂

      There were people who traveled from Oregon! It is a hike for lots of people, but if you include in part of a vacation it is totally worth it! The town is adorable and there’s a lot on the way from Chicago to NC. I’m sure you could find lots of fun along the way!
