Here's a lovely conversation with our sole employee, Becca Foster, who works with us a few hours a week (sometimes much more!) and will be a fixture in our booth at our various fiber show appearances. This is a meandering, wandering, pointless talk - but it's funny, and diverting, and do you really need anything else than that from a free yarn podcast?
