CH 39: Aussie Update

Curious Handmade Podcast Episode 39

I’m recording from Australia and working on the Curious Collective 2014 design.

Thank you to my show sponsor:

Juno Fibre Arts is an artisan yarn and fibre company producing a unique hand dyed collection of yarns and spinning fibres for handknits, spinning, felting and weaving. The Juno studio is located in the grounds of an old, working farm in rural Devon, surrounded by British countryside and the range draws inspiration from its stunning pastoral setting.

Juno yarn is dyed in small and exclusive batches and is available in limited editions on the Juno Arts Etsy shop so look out for the monthly shop updates towards the end of each month.

Global Nomad

I’m recording from the Sunshine Coast in Australia this week and its the last week of our trip.
