Hi Everyone!

On this week’s podcast we had a jam-packed show!  Steve started out announcing just some of the new “May” yarns that are on sale as part of our Anniversary Sale!  He also had some new closeouts to share but we didn’t get to those until the second half of the show!

This week had two lovely guests.  In the first segment we welcomed Rachel Antony-Levine of the non-profit group Prison Birth Project.  You can get complete information on their efforts at the following two sites:

I also had the chance to welcome Melissa Morgan-Oakes back to the podcast.  Not only is a FWO (friend of WEBS) but she also has her second book about to be released.  Toe Up 2-At-A-Time Socks is the follow-up to her wildly popular first book Two-At-A-Time-Socks.

We’ll be celebrating the release of Melissa’s new book this Thursday, May 6th starting at 6pm.  It will be a fun “Melissa in the Round” event with a very casual atmosphere in which she can discuss the second book, guests can ask questions, try the technique, work on their latest project, enjoy some snacks and just have a lovely evening!  There will of course be a book signing and giveaways.  Be sure to email or call Customer Service (800.367.9327 or to register or just stop in the store and sign-up.
