Joanne Seiff, author of Knit Green and Fiber Gathering, joins me on the show to talk about Rhinebeck, fiber events, and the complicated landscape of bring green. She is very knowledgeable about both fiber and the environment and breaks it all down for us in her writing.

Many, many thanks to my friend Alanna at Tactile Travel for taking me on her tour to Rhinebeck. Her tour was wonderful and filled with fiber, history, and wonderful people.

Interviews

IAPM66: Pirates and Designers

In this Episode my friend Jen shares some insite into the Design Copyright discussion. Jen also posted more about it here.

I would love to hear you thoughts on this issue.

Sadly, this show is very short. I am having a hard time finding my voice as I switch from an older computer setup to a new one. Still trying to get comfortable with new computer/mic. I think I will be back in full swing again by the end of the summer.

Oh yeah… I have started to play promos for other knitting podcasts again. This week I played one for KnitScape.
