If you would like to support the podcast, please visit the Become a Booster page.

Otherwise, please keep your local yarn store in mind as you need things in the coming weeks. If you don’t have a local yarn store, mine has used the social isolation to go on line. Please consider supporting my local yarn store, Ewe and You Fiber Arts for Life, if your local yarn shop has closed while we deal with covid-19.

Also, remember that the vendors from various cancelled festivals will be feeling the pinch as well. Visit the website for a festival you’re missing, hop over to the vendor list, and see if you can find someone there selling what you need!

The giant craft stores should weather this storm fine, but the little guys will especially need our support!

Music

Both songs this week are from Kennedy E. Morrison and Stephen Rice. “You’re Very Exceptionary
I Can’t Help But Wonder
