The first episode of Fiber Nation is coming to your knitting podcast download queue on Friday, March 22, 2019. From the khamak embroidery of Afghanistan to Mayan rug hookers in Guatemala, see how women are changing their lives with creativity, courage, and old t shirts.

Publisher Linda Ligon takes us around the world with Thrums Books, and reflects on how the best intentions can sometimes backfire.

Join Allison as she talks with people from all corners of the yarniverse: designers and dyers, shepherds and spinners, publishers and pathfinders. Each episode explores what connects us as knitters and makers.
