    Coming next Friday: The Making Podcast

    For the past few months we've been busy getting the new Making podcast off the ground. As many of you know, Carrie and I joined forces last October and the Woolful podcast is now known as the Making podcast, same format and approach to each makers creative journey's, but now expanded to all types of makers. 



    ...Welcome to Making, a podcast for makers. I’m excited to share with you some incredible people I’ve had the opportunity to talk to in this community we love so much. From knitters and quilters to builders and painters, here’s where you get to listen to a little part of their making journey...



    The first episode of Season 1 launches next Friday, January 26th...and it's extra special being that Carrie and I are the guests. Neither of us have ever been interviewed for a podcast so we thought it would be fun to kick off this new adventure together, sharing our own maker journey's. 



    Here's a little preview of the Making podcast, Season No. 1 / COLOR...

    No. 6 / COLOR – Sewing Happiness with Sanae Ishida

    No. 6 / COLOR – Sewing Happiness with Sanae Ishida

    I love hearing people’s stories, the journey, the deep and the not so deep. It’s the very reason I started the podcast back in 2014, because hearing someone’s story, their creative story, is inspiring and motivating. Sanae Ishida is a quiet force in this community, whether you’re familiar with her work or not, her story and message is so very powerful. She’s an incredible maker, designer, author and artist, in fact she painted the cover for our newest issue, COLOR and she’s had projects in nearly all of our past issues. I think you’re really going to enjoy what she has to share, so grab your project bag and settle in for an inspiring hour. You can find Sanae at sanaeishida.com and on Instagram @sanaeishida.

    No. 3 / COLOR Re-envisioning the fiber landscape with Jared Flood

    No. 3 / COLOR Re-envisioning the fiber landscape with Jared Flood

    Sometimes we forget that those behind some of the biggest names and companies in the industry are just that; people with a vision, makers with a mission and entrepreneurs with a passion and will so strong. Jared Flood is the force behind one of our favorite companies, Brooklyn Tweed. What started out as an idea, quickly grew into something much greater than even he anticipated. Backed by an incredible team and american wool, he’s paved much of the way for modern domestic yarn production and quality knitwear design. It was a pleasure to get to sit down and hear his story, and I hope you enjoy listening in. You can find Jared at brooklyntweed.com and on Instagram @brooklyntweed and @jared_flood
