Podcast Perfection!!

I am blown away by the amount of useful information that is packed into each podcast. Miriam is an incredible host and interviewer. I was so impressed by the podcast about bringing back the fiber industry to our country by growing, harvesting, and processing flax to make linen.
In each episode that I listen to I hear something that makes me proud to be involved in the fiber arts, along with so many other innovative women and men. Thank you, Miriam for bringing their stories to us!

The interviews are interesting and give cool looks into the inner workings of the yarn industry and what we knitters can do to support it.
