Early this year I talked about starting a podcast. I was all in and ready to go. Then everything went all 2020 on me. I started doing the Crazy for Ewe Live events, to say hi and stay in touch. That turned into a regularly scheduled thing with guests and a format, and well, a video podcast! So look for it on the Crazy for Ewe Yarns Facebook Page and the Crazy for Ewe YouTube Channel Share it on Facebook with your friends, subscribe to the YouTube Channel, and click the little bell icon so you can get a reminder when each episode is about to go live.

I'm so happy and proud to have been able to bring you great guests and patterns on the podcast, and I hope you enjoy getting a little inside scoop on the industry and more. Thanks for watching, and for being part of the community.
