Spins & Needles started as an art happening where you would get together with your friends, listen to good music, craft and drink beer. It's a great concept—pay a small cover fee, and you're supplied with all the materials for one or more projects du jour along with suggested instructions. You can let your creativity run wild!
Since its inception in 2005, it has become so much more, encompassing public art installations, silkscreening workshops, art shows and other cultural events. Avid travellers themselves, the organizing duo have taken their event in the road to team up with other internationally renowned organizations like Maker Faire and Etsy Labs. An extremely ambitious couple, they have most recently started their own record label. Simply put, if they're hosting an event while you're in town, you should try to check it out.
