March 15-18, 2018  – NwRSA Camp Burton Spinners’ Retreat, Vashon Island WA

Save space on your 2018 calendar for NwRSA’s annual spinning retreat at Camp Burton on Vashon Island.  This annual event is a relaxing long weekend of spinning, good food, friendship, fiber shopping, and fun at a woodland camp on beautiful Vashon Island, just 30 minutes from Seattle and 15 minutes from Tacoma. The weekend promises hours of uninterrupted spinning, a variety of activities (if you’d like a break from spinning), fiber vendors,  used equipment sale, door prizes,  raffle baskets, walks in the woods, planned social activities, and unique little shops and movie theater in the town of Vashon.
