episode 61 – Inspirations and stories

This week I am hearing all about inspiration and how it can tell amazing stories in colour and design. Karie Westermann is here to talk about the catalysts behind This Thing of Paper and how her love of books and manuscripts is being translated into her new designs for the book. Sylvie, of Phileas Yarns, popped over to talk about how her travel memories are dyed into colourways on sumptuous yarn bases. Get your cuppa and listen via the player below!

episode 58 – Fluph : skeins ‘n’ cakes ‘n’ balls ‘n’ things

Last week I went to Dundee to visit yarn shop Fluph and the wondrous proprietress Leona Jayne Kelly (and her two dogs Oskar and Arthur). We talk about wool, dyeing, the day-to-day of running a yarn shop and the juggling involved. We have a right old laugh too and listen in for a lovely give-away too!
