Episode 097: Heritage Crafts with Elizabeth Williamson

In this episode, Anne invited Elizabeth Williamson, Shetland Lace knitter and designer, back on the show to talk about preserving heritage crafts. How can it be done? Why should it be done? Elizabeth is a talented Shetland Lace knitter, so the discussion takes place in the context of Shetland Lace, but there is a lot to be considered about heritage craft preservation in general!
