I know a bunch of you are on Facebook where I've announced this a few times, but I wanted to let the rest of you know that I'll be hosting a hoop making party sometime in the next couple of weekends and wanted to find out who all is interested in joining us.
I've been going hoopdancing crazy and am enjoying the challenge and exercise that spinning a simple hoop both on and off the body can entail. Unfortunately, those cheap hoops you get from the toy store don't work well for the adult body - you really need a custom sized hoop. They are easy to make yourself, which is a good thing, since otherwise you have to order them online.
If you live in the Seattle/Puget Sound area and are interested in making your own hoop, I am hosting a hoop making party since I have all the tools and whatnot. I'll be asking for a $10 donation to cover the cost of supplies and most likely my husband will be using this opportunity to make something delectable. So far, I have about 6 people interested but if I get a bunch more reponses, I'll most likely hold a couple sessions. I'm thinking of holding the first session the weekend of the 22nd-23rd of May.
Also, if you are new to hooping and if the weather is clear, I can show you some basic techniques after we finish making them.
Anyway, let me know if you are interested by either leaving your name in the comments or sending me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
