As a 'receipt' after a successful registration, please wait and you will be soon opened a team thread in our Ravelry group and you will be sent a call out to the team thread in your Ravelry personal messages (PM). You will find a welcome post in your team thread that will include instructions to your team members not to post until you have had made as many place-marker posts at the start of your thread as you would like to have.

  • You must post the names of the members of your team and keep it updated, indicating the team Deputy Captain. Use Ravelry names where possible, otherwise first or nickname.
  • The first place-marker post should be for listing your team members.
  • Maintain regular posts and updates about your team and encourage your spinners to post in your team thread.
  • Ensure your team are informed of any updates during BritSpin from the locked 'Update' thread.
  • If you have any questions at any time; you can post in the Captains' Lounge thread www.ravelry.com/discuss/britspin/3913020, or the Information Booth thread, or raise a flag on any post or email britspinmods@gmail.com.
  • Ensure all team members are aware of the charity being supported and direct them to the donation website. All participating spinners are invited to donate a minimum of £5 directly through BritSpin Virgin Money Giving Page. Raised charity funds will be donated to RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution).
  • There are no BritSpin prizes as give-aways. Teams can, if they wish, hold intra-team challenges or competitions with prizes.
  • If you have a team sponsor, please encourage your team to mention them in their social media posts, sending thanks and if possible posting any news and photo(s) of yarn spun from their fibre/fleece.
