Guest: Kathy talks with Guido Stein about how the Common Cod Fiber Guild got started and its current speaker series. Just around the corner is Fiber Camp Boston 2012 in Cambridge, MA, a PodCamp like community un-conference for fiber craft enthusiasts including knitters, crocheters, weavers, spinners, dyers, and anyone curious about fiber crafts. Fibercamp is based on the fact that everyone has something to share and teach. Connect with the community by sharing your passion. Registration now for this March 9-11 event. The first 10 Ready, Set, Knit listeners who sign up can use the code WEBS to get $10 off of non-guild registration.
There have been some recent additions to interchangeable needle lines. Check out the new Addi Click Lace Long Tips with the handy life line feature. Knitter’s Pride now has the Special Interchangeable Circular Needle Tips available in the Dreamz, Nova, and Cubics lines. These tips are shorter and when paired with the shortest Knitter’s Pride cable can make a 16″ interchangeable needle. The Knitter’s Pride Comby Interchangeable Sampler Set now includes Cubics tips instead of Trendz tips.
Steve does a recap of Stitches West. Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth. It was a great show.
Details are now on our website about Brenda Dayne’s visit to WEBS May 8-9.
Pinterest is the latest and hottest addition to the social landscape. Think of it like a virtual pin board. You can pin photos and videos on themed boards, a great place to collect things that inspire. WEBS has just started a Pinterest page so we haven’t pinned much yet. Let’s us know what kinds of things you would like to see us pin.
Are you on Pinterest? How do you like to use it?
