Episode 57: Tears of Shackleton

I am still working audio and itunes but in the meantime you can find the latest podcast on YoutTube. I make no mention of recent conversations on sweaters (no show notes boo & hiss) but I will return to this topic soon. I also have a wool heroes and heroines segment to edit. Right..I hope this finds you all well and in good spirits.

Fleece Wise:

he Fibertrek podcast is co-hosting a special series — Fleece-Wise, a deeper exploration of our craft and connection to sheep.

Please post any and all questions (these will by addressed in the series if possible), comments and FOs here. All posts will be eligible for prizes.

This is a four-part series, starting the week of 9/18/16 on the NH Knits Podcast and continuing each week thereafter on the Fibertrek, here on Fibretown and concluding with the Yarns at Yin Hoo podcast just before Rhinebeck.

We hope to purchase a fleece together at Rhinebeck, using information we have gleaned along the way. We plan to include our viewers/listeners in that process as well!

From sarapomegranate : “If you have felt, as I did, that the fleece tent at a fiber festival is overwhelming and intimidating, if you’ve been considering a fleece purchase, if you have unprocessed fleece languishing in storage, if you’re experienced in fleece processing — you are invited to participate in the discussion threads, ask questions and share ideas. Podcast hosts will be facilitating discussion threads and awarding prizes for engaging in discussion.”

The podcasters involved in Fleece-Wise, nhkclaire, Swenstea, and Sarapomegranate have unique experiences, practical information, suggestions and stories to share, as well as interviews with fleece-producers. We hope that there will be something for everyone in this series!
