PLY Away has a scholarship fund and if you contribute to it via the giant button below, you will get a warm and wooly feeling in your fiber-loving heart as well as be entered in a random drawing to have your PLY Away experience totally covered by PLY (airfare to and from Kansas City International Airport, hotel for 6 nights, 5 days of classes, and the Friday night banquet/talk) or be able to register 2 days before registration officially opens.
That’s right! Out of all the spinners that find it in their hearts to donate $20 to the scholarship fund, one will be chosen at random to come to PLY Away for free and 20 others will get to relax and know their registration is 100% guaranteed. The lucky spinner who gets to go to PLY Away on us and those that get to register early will be chosen and announced on Oct 25, 2022. Raffle entries accepted until Oct 24th, 2022
*no purchase necessary, if you prefer to not donate to the scholarship fund, you can still be entered to win both prizes. Send your name, address, phone number, emails address, photo of yourself (this can be a printout or a actual photo) and a 50-yard skein of your handspun to PLY Magazine 61153 Ridgewater loop, Bend OR 97702 by October 20th, 2022
Do you want to come to PLY Away but can’t see a way to make it happen? We’d love to help! Our scholarship spinner will have their PLY Away experience totally covered by PLY (airfare to and from Kansas City International Airport, hotel for 6 nights, 5 days of classes, and any evening ticketed events). For the sixth annual PLY Away, PLY is working with the Woolery to make dreams come true! We have one (maybe 2) scholarship spots and we’d like to give one to you!
If you’d like to be considered for the PLY Away scholarship spot please fill out this form and write a 1000+ word essay on why you think the art of spinning is important to keep alive and how you might spread the love of spinning in your community and beyond, get two letters of recommendation (these can be from other spinners, teachers, friends, as long as they can speak to your spinning passion), and send everything (except the form, I’ll already have that) to email@example.com or PLY Magazine 61153 Ridgewater loop, Bend OR 97702. All entries must be in by Oct 1 and decisions will be made by PLY Magazine and The Woolery and will be announced on October 25th, 2022.
