Convergence® 2024 Skein Competition and Exhibit
sponsored by Kromski North America
A spinning competition with the entered and judged works on display throughout the 4-day Convergence® Marketplace.
Eligibility: All work must be the creation of the participant alone, clean and odor-free and must have been completed within the past two years.
Skein Submission Guidelines:
All skeins should weigh 2 ounces minimum (or, if finer than 20 wpi, contain at least 40 yards), and be neatly wound to a circumference of 1.5 to 2 yards, with both ends of the skein tied together. Skeins may be either naturally colored or dyed.
Skeins should be secured in at least four places using figure eight ties and yarn that matches the skein and washed to set the twist.
