In the Venn diagram of crafting, true crime, and morbid curiosity, you’ll find Bones & Bobbins digging through dusty old boxes in a curiosity shop parked right at the center.
19 - She Walks in Beauty Like a Fright?
S02E19: Mrs. Margaret Smith-Wilkinson, nicknamed the Countess of Monte Cristo, and Lady Jane Lewson, the possible real life inspiration for Miss Havisham.
Come meet a hotel mogul turned high society con artist (who probably wasn’t a black widow), and the enigmatic walking fire hazard that might have inspired Dickens’ fictional jilted bride; two women whose actual lives are truly the stuff of fiction.

18 - Wicked Stitches
S02E18: Woven spells, sewing magic, and the history of spinsters.
Is there someone in your life who knits with glass needles, spins their own yarn, sews their own patterns, or dyes their own thread? Yes? Well, we strongly discourage getting on their bad side. You know, just in case they decide to throw that project into the fire.

17 - Whoa, Mama!
S02E17: Personal Ghost Stories and Haley’s Haunted Mom.
I mean, who doesn’t want to hear stories about a spooky local legend, a whispering apparition, a 1970s UFO, and Haley’s mom talking about the little girl ghost in her hall who looks just a bit too familiar?

16 - Fashion and Function
S02E16: Sewing spacesuits and the science lab at the Eiffel Tower.
Did you know that the Eiffel Tower doubles as art and science? It’s true! Also true: sewing a space suit is hard, and then your work gets shredded.

15 - Make All the Bones About It
S02E15: Catacomb saints and the Sedlec Ossuary.
Here for all of your bejeweled skeleton and fancy skull garland needs!

14 - Fizzle and Bang
S02E14: The doctor-prescribed history of condoms and vibrators.
From “American tips” to hysteria treatments (and, somehow, maybe also bees), the history of getting off is exactly as awkward as you think it is.

Always a pleasure to listen to these ladies! Natalie has been in my geek girl circle for awhile and I trusted I would enjoy this podcast. I wasn’t wrong. Informative and funny! Thanks for the good times!
I heard about this podcast from Zede & Mallory. I’m not normally into morbid and creepy but 2020 has enlightened me. I’ve binged all the episodes while stitching away. Excellent!
Crafty Creepy and Morbidly Fun
Each story is enjoyable to listen to and they’re very well researched! I feel like I’m in the same room with Haley and Natalie drinking coffee and enjoying their story telling! I loved the killer colors story! The chemicals they used in Victorian times is dreadfully frightening!
