In this episode, Anne has a chat with Susan Anderson, the editor of the Journal of Scottish Yarns, about her fiber background and the birth of the Journal. They cover some of the topics in past issues as well as issue three, which will provide the patterns for a make along starting on June 28! Listen to the episode for details!
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!
Anne takes a fiber-themed walk through Commercial Street in Lerwick and out to the far end of town. Have you been thinking of a visit to Shetland, or do you have a visit coming up? Get a sense of just how fiber-packed the main street of the town is with this walk from Jimmy Perez’s house to Jamieson and Smith.
