It’s been a long cold 2 years without y’all! Join us for the 2022 PLY Away Spinning Retreat put on by PLY Magazine, April 19-23, 2022.
Right smack dab in the middle of the USA in Kansas City, Missouri, come join us while we learn, share, enjoy, and just sit and spin! Build your own spinning schedule from in-depth 3-day classes, immersive 2-day classes, fun 1-day classes, or dip your toe in with any of our half-day classes, but make sure to leave a bit of time to relax and spin with like-minded folks!
At PLY Away you’ll find classes based on the 2021 PLY Magazine topics: Double-coated sheep, Electric, Consistency, and Head and Hand, along with foundation, advanced, dyeing, and weaving classes with some of the best and brightest spinners at the front of the classrooms; a 35-vendor marketplace with plenty of time to shop; evening events that will relax, thrill, and fill you up; plus a whole lot of little surprises that will make this the fiber event you’ll never want to miss! Join us for 5 days, 4 days, 3 days, or just the weekend; we’ll all be happy you did!
We have a mandatory vaccination requirement at PA 22 for everyone (attendees, teachers, vendors, etc.). If the CDC changes the recommendation for gathering indoors (and in groups), we will adapt and change our policies. Please understand that we have the entirety of our community and their health in mind as we make these decisions. It is not our wish to exclude anyone, we’re just trying to make the best, safest decisions based on the information and guidelines provided to us via the CDC, the PlyAway venue, our teachers, vendors, and community. Thanks for understanding that we are doing our best with what we have. If you aren’t vaccinated (and we understand there are a number of reasons for somebody not getting vaccinated) we hope that we’ll be able to see your face in 2023!
