Riccarton Mall

Our day at Riccarton Mall, thanks to Lesley from the mall admin team and also the guys who helped us get sorted at the beginning, unfortunately I didn't get their names.   We had a wonderful day, lots of people who showed interest in what we were doing and some who were interested in learning as well.
Many children took a closer look and some went home with bits of fibre which they definitely appreciated.
There were quite a few photographs taken, several by international visitors so I suspect we'll get our 15 seconds of fame.   We definitely succeeded in raising our profile and I loved hearing many of the parents explaining what we were doing to their children; most of them had the details correct even if the terminology was sometimes slightly different from what we normally use.

I really hope we'll get to do this sort of thing more in the future; spinning in public is such good publicity and gives us opportunities to introduce more people to the wonderful world of spinning.

We are:  Heather, Rachelle (me), Pat, Sandra, Mary Catherine and Janet.
