The Podcasts

This week it's an interview episode and I am chatting to the vivacious duo that is Alison Thistlewood and Rachel Brown, the ladies behind Yarn In The City and the Great London Yarn Crawl. Both businesswomen in their own right with their own separate businesses, they are here to chat about all things yarn and business. There's also some agonising over the Desert Island Skeins and some stash chat, amonst all the usual interview questions.

Tickets for the event are now on sale.
