Sponsor: I wanted to thank one of our sponsors for this week’s episode, Nutmeg in Nashville, Tennessee. Nutmeg started as a cottage industry, out of creator Meg Anderson’s kitchen, with pop up shops and workshops. The store is a passion project, it’s about building a space for the vibrant community of makers to be inspired. They carry unique fabrics, perfect for building a real wardrobe with, and lovely prints for quilting, etc. Meg works hard to carry fibers that are one of kind, from small batch makers, as well as skeins for folks that are just learning. She dreams of one day having an entire wall of local farm yarn. It’s important to her to have quality items, that feel accessible, so that people feel welcomed into the world of knitting/sewing and inspires all the creative juices. Make sure to visit Nutmeg when in Nashville and online at nutmegster.com, where you’ll find a really great selection of maker goods, including their new yarn lovers club. You can find Nutmeg on Instagram @nutmegster.

Fiber folk: This week we get to follow the journey of southern sweetheart, Rebekka Seale of Camellia Fiber Company. Many of you may be familiar with her beautiful handspun and naturally hand dyed yarns, but it’s the woman behind this operation and endeavor that you really must get to know. As we talked and I listened to her stories, there was a sense of familiarity in the ways of career, dreams, family and pursuits. Many of those stories you get to hear here today, and I hope you’ll be as charmed and inspired by her as I was. You can find Rebekka at camelliafibercompany.com and on Instagram @camelliafibercompany.

Events: I wanted to let you all know about an exciting new event that is taking place this October. One of our past guests, Hanahlie Beise has started a wonderful new residency, Colour in the Cauldron. It is the first of a textile research & residency series organized by her company, Hinterland Textiles, and will take place in Oaxaca, Mexico. Located high in the mountainous Central Valleys region, Oaxaca is rich in culture and is known world wide for its history in textiles and natural dyes.

This residency includes nine nights’ accommodation at a beautiful bed and breakfast in the heart of the city. Folks will participate in an intensive natural dye workshop with Elsa Sanchez Diaz and Eric Chavez in Teotitlan del Valle for two full days, have an open studio day in Oaxaca City where they focus on dyeing with cochineal and caoba, chauffeured trips to a cochineal farm and coyuchi cotton village, guided tours of many local museums and galleries and scheduled talks and conversations with local textile experts and tours to various parts of the city and surrounding area.

You can find more info on how to join this amazing excursion on the Hinterland website.

    My fibre journey began in a similar way — I learned to spin while working as an historic interpreter at a reconstructed 1860s village. That job also introduced me to natural dyeing, and, in answer to the man on the street question, I love working with materials that I can source from local parks and ravines within walking distance of my urban home. Over the past year I have experimented with buckthorn berries, black walnut husks, sumac berries and horsetail.

    I’ve actually been looking at Rebekka’s yarns for a long time now. I am especially in love with the ways that she brings natural dyes to the table, but at the same time, making the colors as vibrant as a yarn dyed by an acid-dye user. I think she pull color off better, though. 🙂

  • Reply Kathy July 2, 2015 at 4:53 pm

    Ashley, your podcasts are so inspiring and entertaining.

    I’m loving your podcast, which I just discovered this week. It has truly inspired me to step up my own fiber journey. It’s good to hear from people like Rebekka who, like me, were super nerdy and deeply enchanted by the fiber arts at a young age. Also, I was quite surprised to hear from so many Asheville, North Carolinians, and I wonder where these people hang out and why we are not geeking out over natural dyes together.

    My best knitting friend is far away out of state so it’s nice to listen to your podcast and feel like I’m a part of a close community. I love the intros to new people and learning more in depth about people whose art I already adore. Thanks as always.

    Yarn is new to me. Thanks for the introduction!

  • Reply Sarah July 6, 2015 at 7:26 pm

    Oh my goodness that yarn is so scrumptious. I loved hearing how Rebekka got started spinning 🙂 And I totally want to be one of her spinners who spins around the clock!

    Great podcast! I love hearing how people find their passion, who knew RenFests could spark that kind of love? I love following Camellia Fiber Company on Instagram, such lush photos, she has me drooling over her yarns like a fool!

    Oh that yarn does look delightful. Thank you!

    Lovely lunchtime listening – thank you for this. The man on the street portion reminded me of naturally dying easter eggs with my grandma using onions and beets and other root vegetables. Wish I wasn’t at my desk right now so I could experiment with fiber! The Camellia yarn sounds so dreamy, can’t wait to get my hands on some.

    It was wonderful to hear Rebekka speak and to catch up with some of her news! Thanks for your interview questions. Now I am excited to learn more about Woolful as well. I loved the discussion about fiber [also especially loved the little chime tune you played as a background and am so curious to know how it is produced and am wondering is it available for purchase.] <3

  • Reply Sarah July 7, 2015 at 2:06 pm

    Super happy to have discovered the Woolful podcast. I love hearing all the stories about how people got into fibers. Dreaming more and more about starting a fiber farm. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

  • Reply Jennifer Cole July 7, 2015 at 2:15 pm

    Wow! What an amazing episode. I was lucky to take a workshop with Rebekka and she is the kindest person and has the most beautiful yarn. I would love to see the Have Company shop in person.

  • Reply Melanie Richards July 8, 2015 at 11:02 am

    Found the podcast through Camellia Fiber Co’s Instagram and so glad I did! Looking forward to future episodes. As an aside it’s comforting to hear that someone else has interstate-accident anxieties and that finding zen generally helped with that issue specifically…this is a significant worry I’m trying to work through as well!

  • Reply Kathy July 8, 2015 at 11:36 am

    I’m new to IG and now to podcasts. I’m learning so many new things and making new cyber friends for knitting. I really enjoy your podcasts on my commute to work, and always enjoy trying new yarns!

  • Reply Terri July 8, 2015 at 11:44 am

    Your podcasts are so inspiring, and almost every line of fiber/yarn you feature is added to my wish list. Natural is always beautiful!

  • Reply Laura July 8, 2015 at 9:27 pm

    I really enjoyed listening to Rebekka’s journey. I love hearing their stories of how they ended up where they are now. I am really enjoying all of the connections I’ve found through Instagram. I found out about Rebekka’s lovely yarn through Beth Kirby (local_milk). Not too long ago I found Marlee Grace (havecompany) through Jess Schreibstein (thekitchenwitch). Then there are all of the amazing people I’ve discovered through the Woolful podcasts. I really love supporting local independent artists, thanks to Woolful and Instagram my “local” community has grown immensely. Thank you for helping us all discover these amazing people.

    What a wonderful episode, thankyou! I’d love to try camellia fibres yarn.

  • Reply Nicole Craig July 9, 2015 at 12:11 pm

    What a lovely conversation! I so enjoyed listening to this podcast while I caught some knitting time while my two little ones napped. It was so fun to hear about how Camellia came about and hear from some of the makers and artists I follow on Instagram. And I can’t wait to get a road trip in to Have Company to squish some Camellia yarn for myself! So excited to be one of their funders to bring Quince & Co and Camellia yarns to their beautiful shop. Thank you for the great podcast!

  • Reply Anja July 15, 2015 at 6:17 am

    I love all your podcasts! This one was so inspiring because the yarns are absolutely gorgeous. My favourite part was finding out that she makes a marled yarn from the fleeces of the two alpaca besties….that is the best 🙂
