Yarnspinners Tales's Podcast
Exploring the world of fiber, one draft at a time.

I went to the Lexington Ky Sheep and Fiber festival in May, and this podcast is a review of that great trip.  Here is a link to the vendor list.

A few specific links for vendors I mention in the podcast:

The Ross Farm Fibers    Dyed in the Wool 

A Yarn Well Spun    Rock and String Creations

I mentioned the video for Dirty Jobs, where Mike goes to Ohio Valley woolen mill.

The Ravelry pattern is the Ten Stitch Blanket by Frankie Brown.  The link may or may not take you to it, Ravelry requires you to be signed in to see it.

Finally music for today's podcast is from Music Alley and is by Rachel Barton Pine. It is a violin medley of Scots tunes.

I forgot to hit publish!  Sorry about that.  So here it is on June 2nd.  The promised podcast is below this one on the webpage.

 

This is a short podcast that I will release on the first of every month.  It has all the information about how to find specific episdoes, where to contact me and how to get your very own Spinners' Journal.

I listen to many podcasts and get tired of hearing the podcaster's information over and over before we get to the podcast.  I have decided I would put all this information here and release it once a month.  If you need the information, just listen in.  If you don't, you can just wait for the next podcast.

Happy spinning!
