This is my little (long) meander back through my experiences of the Edinburgh Yarn Festival, and it will be coming at you in two parts.
There are none of the usual podcast sections this time, just me looking back nostalgically – with a happy tear and great memories of a fantastic weekend.
UPDATE: Due to space I can no longer host the audio files on the blog, please use your favourite podcatcher or right click the Podgen link , to listen in a new tab (y’know, so you can also refer to the shownotes whilst you listen!)
The show notes are link and photo heavy! Just listen in…
In addition to all my EYF day one reminiscing, I tell you all about the Podcast Lounge and my British wool squishing session and I grab quick chats with Adrienne, from Williams wools and Laura Rosenzweig of Laura’s Loom.
| Links I mention
teapot trust – a charity providing art therapy for children with chronic illness. The charity provided wool winding and bag creches for donations.
Holyrood 9A – the best place for burgers and guest beers and ciders in Edinburgh.
