  • We're Celebrating 100 Episodes of YarnCraft

    Since October of 2007, I've been lucky enough to work on our podcast, YarnCraft, a radio-style show that's available online and to download. It's been a wonderful part of my job, allowing me and my co-host Liz to share project ideas, sneak peeks at upcoming yarns, interviews with knit and crochet experts, and more. Over the years, our listeners have told us that they enjoy incorporating a little YarnCraft into their commutes, their morning jogs, and of course their crafting time, and we love that they share their comments, thoughts, stories, and photos with us and other listeners, making it a truly interactive experience.

    On September 13th, we're going to reach a special milestone: our 100th episode. To celebrate, Liz & I have hit the virtual road and are giving interviews on all kinds of topics (and giving away prizes) all over the internet.

    Be sure to catch us us at the following places:

    September 2 - The Crochet Dude
    Crochet designer and all around cool guy, Drew Emborsky, asks Liz & Zontee to spill the beans about Vanna White, Lion Brand's charity connection, and the secrets to putting together a podcast. Plus there just might be a chance to score some of Vanna's newest yarn.

    September 5 - Craftsy Blog
    Well-known knitwear designer and teacher, Stefanie Japel, picks Liz & Zontee's brains and gets some advice on crocheting for beginners. Get a second chance to win some Vanna's Colors while you're there.

    September 7 - Crochet by Faye
    Crochet designer Robyn Chachula asks the ladies of YarnCraft all about podcasting, working at Lion Brand, and the inspiration behind the LB Collection. Enter for a chance to win two balls of LB Collection Superwash Merino while you're there.

    September 8 - PlanetJune
    Liz & Zontee answer questions from crochet designer and YarnCraft listener, June Gilbank. Find out about how working on YarnCraft has effected Liz & Zontee's crafting lives. Also, get a chance to win 3 balls of Vanna's Choice, June's preferred amigurumi yarn.

    September 12 (live at 9 pm; also available for download afterwards) - Getting Loopy! Podcast
    Knit & crochet designer/blogger/podcaster, Mary Beth Temple, interviews Zontee about how to get started podcasting. Chat with Mary Beth live online during the show to submit questions!

    September 12 - KnitPurlGurl Podcast
    Karrie, a.k.a. KnitPurlGurl chats with Zontee for a behind-the-scenes look at Lion Brand on her podcast. You'll also have a chance to win 3 balls of Superwash Merino Cashmere while you're there.

    For episodes of YarnCraft (I like to say it’s like “Car Talk” for knitters & crocheters), visit our blog or find us on iTunes. YarnCraft comes out twice a month on Tuesdays.
