“Encore” Fiber Talk with Terri Bay

One of Terri Bay’s Lotus box designs.

This podcast originally aired in February 2018. This is an encore presentation of a very enjoyable conversation Terri Bay of Terri Bay Needlework Designs about whitework, blackwork, hardanger, Lotus boxes, and Romanian point lace. Most of Terri’s designs are Ukrainian in their genesis, but she is starting to add other techniques, such as blackwork. She also enjoys Hardanger, samplers with specialty stitches, and is a fiber addict. We hope you enjoy this encore podcast with Terri Bay.–Christine and Gary

Fiber Talk with Vonna Pfeiffer V

Quilt created by Vonna Pfeiffer.

It’s the final new show of 2018 and we’re more than happy to have Vonna Pfeiffer join us to end the year. In the show, we covered a mountain of topics including quilting, needlework finishing, stitching spaces, and ergonomics. It’s always fun to talk with Vonna and this time was no exception. Thanks to The Twisted Stitcher and all of the other guests who made 2018 a terrific year for Fiber Talk. Most important, thanks to all of our rapidly growing audience of listeners for listening each week and letting us know how much you enjoy the shows. We’ll take a short break for the holidays and be back on Jan. 2 to begin another year of needlearts conversations.–Gary and Christine

Fiber Talk with Linda Stolz

The Caroling Berries collection by Erica Michaels.
Her name is Linda Stolz, her business is Erica Michaels Needleart Designs, she’s our guest this week, and you need to stitch a basket full of her Berries designs. Linda learned needlework and sewing the conventional way, from her mother and grandmother, and never stopped. It was a stint working at a local needlework store that put her on the path to needleart design. In the conversation, we talk about how she develops her designs, her Berries and Patriotic series, petite designs, stitching on silk gauze, and her Train a Dog, Save a Warrior fundraising efforts. We’re confident you’ll enjoy our conversation with one of the true talents in the needlearts hobby.–Gary and Christine
