Fiber Arts Podcast in Connecticut, USA

Starting From Scratch

In this episode, we talk about how to start crafting from the beginning – whether you are just getting into one of the fiber arts, or if you are a seasoned crafter looking to change up your stash, tools, or processes.

Jess has a Mystery Box segment explaining all about ball bands – the tags you find on your skeins of yarn – and why you should pay attention to them. Learn what you need to know!

This is our first episode trying out a new remote system for recording, and we think it worked great! Living in the Northeast we have to deal with all sorts of unpredictable weather during a good part of the year, and we are optimistic that we have (finally!) found a remote system that works so we can keep recording even when the weather isn’t so great. Let us know what you think!
