@CheyH ,

a very encouraging listen!

i love cindy’s podcast! she digs into the life of each artist and lets them share their long story to their fiber art career. it’s so encouraging to hear that each person had a beginning and that their story is very similar to mine! a beginner that practiced and said yes to each new endeavor. thanks for making the fiber art path tangible to those just starting out!! keep them coming, cindy!!

Great resource

This show is a great resource for fiber artists but quite hoestly, I'm not a fiber artist and I love it. Cindy asks good questions and has interesting guests. Well worth a listen.
