Media Link: New & Neatby Nitting (44:23)
There's a million crafters in Fiber City and we've all got a yarn to spin.
This episode of Fiber Beat is underwritten by Bobbin's Nest Studio, from Santa Clara, CA. Bobbin's Nest is a yarn and fabric store, specializing in materials for knitting, crocheting, sewing and hand embroidery. This fall, Bobbin's Nest celebrates it's third anniversary of bringing fiber and fabric sophistication to the Bay Area.
In this episode I spend some quality time with two very imaginative and colorful characters, Debbie New & Lucy Neatby. What I love about both Debbie & Lucy is their playfulness in design and their fearlessness in color exploration. I spoke with both of them after completing Stitches West workshops in Northern California. This episode is another gem from the vaults, so from time to time there might be references to items that are "coming up" that have already passed (i.e. Think Outside the Sox book, etc.).
