We know how hectic the holiday season can be. With all of the hustle and bustle it can be important to carve out a bit of quiet crafting time to preserve your equanimity. So this week we have an unusual treat for you, so that you can do just that.
Our friends at Verb for Keeping Warm are in the midst of a special podcasting project that will tell the stories of all of the fascinating fiber folks featured in their stunning Fall 2018 Lookbook, over the course of 7 episodes.
In the first episode, we meet Sally Fox. She is the Californian farmer who raises the organic red cotton and the sheep who grow the wool used in the yarns featured in this collection. In the second episode, we follow the wool from the farmer to the mill. Kristine describes how the wool is prepared for the mill and Adrienne speaks to David Ritchie, co-founder and current co-op member of the Spinnery.
David walks listeners through our production process giving you an unique chance to hear from someone with over thirty years experience talk about what it’s like to spin yarn for such mindful customers as the folks at Verb. We think that his passion for fiber and what we do here at the Spinnery is just what you need to recharge your holiday cheer.
We hope that you’ll set aside an hour at some point and treat yourself to story that will remind you of how magical yarn can be and how lucky we are to work with fibers that can knit us all together with hope for a brighter future.
Brew a delicious mug of something comforting, grab your knitting and enjoy!
