I think as of late, the only people you will have had the chance to have met from this thread, are myself, and K__.
I'd been thinking about doing this for a while, but your query about the active people cemented it, this thread is a little out of touch:
I propose a new Oxford spinner home
there's nothing to see here any more, women and children first, please move along to ... : The Great Oxfordshire Spinning Community
an all new thread we can keep up-to-date
