REPOST: Fiber Talk with Deb Jochim

NOTE: This is a repost of the Aug. 4, 2019 show. Due to a file uploading error, some podcast apps did not pick up the podcast. Here’s hoping this repost fixes things. Sorry for the hassle. Gary

Punch Needle & Primitive Stitcher magazine.

Our guest this week is Deb Jochim, owner and editor of Punch Needle & Primitive Stitcher magazine. This week’s show is sponsored by The Attic Needlework shop in Mesa, AZ, where samplers rule. Our conversation with Deb explored how the magazine got started, what Deb is doing with it today, Deb’s stitching and design work, and Vonna’s finishing contributions. It’s a good look behind-the-scenes of a terrific magazine created by a talented needleworker. We hope you enjoy the show.–Gary and Vonna

Fiber Talk Sampler Sunday

Lydia Barnes Pidgeon 1827 by Scattered Seed Samplers

It’s Sampler Sunday with Vonna and Gary. We’ve been planning for some time to do a Wednesday show in which we talk about what we like about the samplers we own. We never seem to get to it, so we decided to record a special show, thus our first Sampler Sunday. Even better is that the show is sponsored by Sassy Jacks Stitchery. Even better than that, Sassy Jacks Stitchery is offering a 15% discount on full kits (chart, threads, ground cloth) for each of the samplers we talk about in the show. Full details about this offer are provided in the show introduction. We hope you enjoy Sampler Sunday.–Gary and Vonna
