Our New Podcast! Premier Episode Uncut

We are Podcasters! Come Fiber Chat with us.

Welcome to the launch of a new podcast. Holly from Turquoise Owl Fiber and I (Michigan Spinning) are joining forces to explore and share everything we know and want to know about the world of fiber.

This first episode was recorded on the fly one day when I stopped by for a visit with Holly. Neither one of us has ever really done much video recording so please bear with us and be kind in reviewing our podcast as we move forward in this exciting endeavor. We hope you enjoy the podcast and we welcome your feedback. If you don't like our podcast just don't watch it. If you love it, let us know.

In upcoming episodes we will have a format to follow and we will be more organized. We are already working on the segments for the next recording. Holly and I both love all aspects of the fiber world and so we will be sharing segments on knitting, crochet, weaving, spinning, and other handwork involving textiles. We won't talk about everything every week but every week there will be knitting spinning and crochet because that is what we do 90 % of the time.

Depending on how frequently we record we will also include a question and answer segment where listeners can ask us questions and we will answer them on the air.

*** We both realized after reviewing our recording that although we see everything backwards as in a mirror when we are recording, you , the viewer, will see it the right way.  I'm technologically challenged and so our videos will also be uncut. I have no idea how to edit anything and so what ever happens on the podcast will stay on the podcast.

Here are the show notes for this weeks episode.
