Last week, I chalked up a new experience!
In the evening hours on Tuesday, I went out to my workroom, cleared some space on the table amongst an ever-growing pile embroidery threads and current stitching projects, and set up a laptop with a mic and some headphones.
Then, I connected via Skype with Gary Parr and Christine Williams of FiberTalk, a podcast for fiber art hobbyists, to enjoy an hour and a half of spontaneous conversation about stitching and such.
It isn’t often that I get to have a good chat about needlework and related subjects with other folks who are equally enthused!
Retrospectively, I had only a hazy idea what we talked about. I did recall mentioning putting my shoes on to work – vital information for your everyday life, I’m sure!
The whole experience was a lot of fun! If you can get past my very outdated picture (I really am going to update photos of myself this spring) and occasional bursts of impromptu chortling, feel free to join the three of us and listen in on our conversation. Gary & Christine are a blast, they have lots of great insights for stitchers and fiber hobbyists, and they keep the conversation rolling.
You can listen online directly through the FiberTalk website here, or you can listen to FiberTalk via iTunes (go ahead and subscribe, so you can keep up with upcoming episodes!) or listen and subscribe via other podcast apps, depending on what kind of phone or tablet you use.
You’ll find 11 episodes of FiberTalk available to listen to. Each is just around an hour or an hour and ten minutes long, making them perfect for listening to during a nice stitching break or over a long commute.
I’ve really enjoyed hearing the stories of the other designers and fiber enthusiasts Gary and Christine have interviewed, and I think you will, too!
If you give it a listen, I’d love to hear your feedback! Any topics you wish we had touched on? Any topics you’d like to hear more about? I’m all ears! Feel free to chat about it in the comments below!
Happy Monday! Hope your week’s off to a great start!
