49 episodes

A weekly witchy themed fiber arts podcast! We're a coven of two yarn witches trying to craft fiber magic through knitting, dyeing, spinning, and whatever we can get our witchy hands on. It's a long distance coven, so we thought we'd open it up to yarn witches across the globe so we can spread our black magics far and wide. Lauren is the dyer behind Valkyrie Fibers and Emily designs knitting patterns under the name Kitty With A Cupcake. New episodes drop on Tuesdays!

    Reverse Promotion!  Lauren’s Etsy shop is closed while she has an “Unplanned Vacation” due to the Caldor Fire.  But if you saw South Lake Tahoe in the news and wanted to help, Lauren suggests donating to Rural Resistance Placerville (their instagram feed has a post listing how to donate!) to support locals displaced by the Caldor Fire or donating to the Wildland Firefighter Foundation because seasonal wildland firefighters don’t get insurance benefits of any kind!  WFF supports wildland firefighters (and their families) who are killed or injured and do not have access to health or life insurance. wffoundation.org

Witch*craft* at its finest

Listening to Emily and Lauren is like sitting in a room with two close friends. They are both so talented and knowledgeable — Emily a knitting pattern designer and Lauren an indie yarn dyer. I love hearing about their current projects and learning something new in the Occult Corner in this podcast. The Fiber Coven they created is such a fun, inclusive, and supportive group for all crafters. Highly recommend joining the Patreon to connect with the whole Coven!
