No. 1 / COLOR – Making a discovery with Carrie Hoge & Ashley Yousling

February 1, 2018

For the past few months we’ve been busy getting the new Making podcast off the ground. As many of you know, Carrie and I joined forces last October and the Woolful podcast is now known as the Making podcast. Same format and approach to each maker’s creative journey, but now expanded to all types of makers. This first episode of Season No. 1 / COLOR is extra special being that Carrie Hoge and I are the guests. Neither of us have ever been interviewed for a podcast so we thought it would be fun to kick off this new adventure together, sharing our own maker journey’s. We hope you enjoy getting a glimpse into our lives, craft and love of color.

For the past few months we’ve been busy getting the new Making podcast off the ground. As many of you know, Carrie and I joined forces last October and the Woolful podcast is now known as the Making podcast, same format and approach to each makers creative journey’s, but now expanded to all types of makers.

…Welcome to Making, a podcast for makers. I’m excited to share with you some incredible people I’ve had the opportunity to talk to in this community we love so much. From knitters and quilters to builders and painters, here’s where you get to listen to a little part of their making journey…

The first episode of Season No. 1 / COLOR launches next Friday, February 2nd…and it’s extra special being that Carrie and I are the guests. Neither of us have ever been interviewed for a podcast so we thought it would be fun to kick off this new adventure together, sharing our own maker journey’s.

Here’s a little preview of the Making podcast, Season No. 1 / COLOR…

Woolful Podcast

Announcing Making + Woolful

October 5, 2017

This week is a big week, as it marks the joining of forces between two amazing companies, Making + Woolful.

Together we are stronger and can bring more to this community that we love so much.

Making is now: the magazine you’ve come to love + a podcast for makers + a growing maker’s market.

The magazine will continue to publish twice a year. The Woolful podcast will now be the Making podcast, continuing to be hosted by myself, keeping the same format and creative journey approach with guests from all aspects of the making community—from production to finished work. The Woolful podcast will air through October and look for Season One of the Making podcast launching in January 2018. If you’re a subscriber through the iTunes or another platform, don’t worry, the RSS feed will stay the same and you’ll continue to get updates to new episodes of the Making podcast as well as access to all the past episodes of Woolful. The Woolful Mercantile will be a part of Making Market in November, where you’ll be able to find all the yarns, the calendar and some new fun things soon. The Woolful blog will remain a place I share about the going ons of our farm, wool inspiration, the podcast and Making in general.

Together Carrie and I have created the 2018 Sheep Wall Calendar, available for both retail and wholesale. Pre-orders for both wholesale and retail are now open, go here to view.

This calendar is a celebration, of wool, friendship and nature.

The fibers we work with each tell a story. Where they originated, who cared for them, and what they are to become.

Our hope for you in 2018, is that you’ll find more blessings within your making than ever before. Whether you knit, dye, crochet, weave, spin or sew – there is far more to learn, experience and appreciate.

We are really excited about this new journey and we hope you’ll come alongside us to support and encourage. Thank you for making what we do possible.

– Ashley
