In the words of one of my guests for this Christmas Special episode '2020 has been a year like no other', not least because lockdown was responsible for setting me off on this Making Stitches podcasting journey. Back in spring as we were locked down during the first wave of the pandemic, I decided to focus some of my time on speaking to inspiring makers and telling their stories.
Since then I have spoken to people from all walks of life who enjoy yarn crafts, sewing and weaving. My guests have been from the UK, Europe and Australia so far, and in this episode for the first time, you'll hear from a maker from across the pond in Canada too. I thought a Christmas Special would give me the opportunity to look back at this year and share some of the 'Stitch Stories' listeners to the podcast have shared with me as well.
In this episode you will hear from guests from my first two episodes; Lisa Hesketh & Lynda-Rose Simonini from The Crochet Sanctuary and Eleonora Tully from Coastal Crochet as well as four 'Stitch Stories' from listeners and makers in Canada, Gibraltar and the UK. So however you are spending this festive period, hopefully you will feel as though you are among like-minded friends as you listen to this.
Wishing you all a peaceful Christmas & all the best for the year ahead. Keep safe & enjoy your crafting!
