Episode 45: Loafing Yet Productive
Thank you for joining us for Episode 45! For this episode, we are proudly sponsored by EverythingOld.
At Everything Old, we love colour! From our juicy layered semi-solids and brilliant hand-paints to our eye-catching tie-dyes and the occasional self-striping; we are inspired by everything from video games to the natural splendour of our home in beautiful British Columbia. Find our fantastic colours on spinning fibre and luxurious yarn bases ranging from lace to Aran weight! At Everything Old you can also find fantastic handmade project bags and original patterns. We have everything you need to get your fibre fix! You can find EverythingOld at everythingoldcrafts.etsy.com.
