Tour de Fleece at The Altered Stitch!

What says celebrating the Tour de France like Tour de Fleece?! Join us for a month of spinning as we watch the Tour rides and practice our own form of fiber spinning. We will have in store sessions on July 9th and 16th as well as spin nights on Wednesday and Fridays. 

Join our Ravelry group to stay up to date on this fun spin-tastic event! 

Tour de Fleece rules:

  • Spin every day the Tour rides, if possible. Saturday July 1 through Sunday July 23th. Days of rest: Monday, July 10th and Monday, July 17th. (Just like the actual tour.)
  • Spin something challenging on the challenge days (usually the toughest high mountain stage: this year, itโ€™s Stage 9, on Sunday, July 9th, when the riders will take on 3 mountains with a steeper than 10% grade, and Stage 15, on Sunday, July 16th, when they will face high altitude and steep grade!
  • Wear yellow on Sunday July 23th to announce victory. Why not wear yellow on any day you feel particularly successful? (Yellow is the color of the race leader in the Tour - but here we are all โ€˜race leadersโ€™) Other colors if desired: Green (sprinter - think FAST), Polka-dot (climber - as in uphill), and white (rookie).
