Making Podcast

No. 4 / COLOR – Sewing with purpose, with Anna Graham

March 16, 2018

Anna Graham has her hands in a lot of sewing goodness these days and if you’re a Making magazine reader you may be familiar with her work, from petal pouches and totes, to wallets and her newest amazing project in COLOR, the Making Backpack. Anna’s ambition and passion is evident as she tells her makers journey, one I’m sure many of you will be able to relate to. We’re so inspired by her approach to making and hope you will be to. You can find Anna at noodle-head.com and on Instagram @noodlehead531.

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.

Fiber folk: It’s hard to put into words just how great the family behind Yarn on the House, or YOTH yarns is. Earlier this year I spent an evening with the whole crew and it was mesmerizing to watch the dynamic between each member, the love, the dedication and the consideration that makes this family run operation a joy and success. For anyone who’s even been in the same room as Veronika Jobe, knows the positive energy and enthusiasm this woman exudes. I hope as you listen today, you come away inspired by this family’s story and gratitude. You can find YOTH at yothyarns.com and on Instagram @yarnonthehouse.

Sponsor: Wool & Honey’s focus is on thoughtful companies who add their own stories to our little spot in the world–brands that highlight fibers that mirror the exquisite natural beauty of their area. Michigan fiber artists are paramount—and their selection of locally grown, dyed, spun yarns and fiber is unparalleled. The hive is the center of it all–it’s home. Home to bees of all ages and ability levels, each adding a bit of shine to a vibrant community. Every day, these tiny workers gather pollen–powdery bits of fluff–and with a little time and effort, transform it into gorgeous, golden nectar. How similar we knitters are to the bee! Taking nothing more than two sticks and a string, we create warmth and comfort, fabric to clothe and decorate our bodies.

Make sure to visit on Saturday October 29th from 10-4pm for the Brooklyn Tweed trunk show, full of surprises, samples to try on, patterns and special guest Jared Flood will be signing copies of his new book, Woolens. Visit woolandhoney.com for more info and in person for a selection of YOTH yarns and other wooly goods. Follow along on Instagram @woolandhoney.
