Stash | Creative Conversations with Makers & Doers

Sports & Recreation Podcasts >

In each episode of the Stash podcast, we’ll bring you an interview with someone who is hustling it out in their own creative business. We'll talk to people in the yarn industry, like knitwear designers and indie yarn dyers, as well as other people outside this industry. Think sewing and jewelry designers, photographers, wood carvers, and more! We’ll talk about how these creative entrepreneurs stay motivated and inspired, what projects they’re excited about, and cut to the heart of why they do what they do. Along the way you’ll also hear from The Stash Enhancers, the crew of incredible fiber artists from Stash. We’ll share what we’re working on, the yarns we’re coveting, and perhaps some tales from working behind the counter at a yarn shop.
