Episode 46 - Knitters in the Round at Pomfest: Crafting Consciously

Hi Pomcats! For this episode we have the second of our Knitters in the Round panel discussions. These crafty chats were recorded at Pomfest this summer, where our our Pom Pom pal and resident columnist Anna Maltz was joined by fellow knitters to discuss issues and ideas around that wonderful world of wool.

The topic for this talk was 'Crafting Consciously', discussing the choices we have as knitters and the environmental impact these can have. Thinking about the ethics of how we craft are -

Bristol Ivy - designer extraordinaire
Clara Parkes - author, traveler and yarn sniffer
Julia Billings - natural dyer and stitcher, know as Woollenflower
Julie Asselin - hand dyer of sumptuous yarns
