Talking about embroidery on Fiber Talk!

A few weeks ago I was interviewed by Gary and Christine for a wonderful podcast called Fiber Talk. It’s specifically for fiber artists and interviews have been with artists in all areas of fiber art; canvas work, finishing, embroidery, textile manipulation and more. It’s great to listen to when embroidering! You can listen directly from the web site,   subscribe through iTunes  listen on Floss Tube or on other apps specific to your phone or tablet.

Both Gary and Christine are fiber artists in their own right and have different interests from mine, so we had a lot to chat about. The afternoon they called I found a quiet place with a cup of tea to settle down and have a good long chat about embroidery.

We talked about studying at the Royal School of Needlework, embroidery in Europe, my new studio, upcoming classes I’m planning and loads more. The hour flew by, talking to two people who have the same passion for thread I do!

Fiber Talk is produced 2 times a week so there are lots of past interviews to listen to. The world of fiber art is huge and there are so many talented people from whom we can learn.

If you listen, I’d love to know what you think and find out if there are things you would like to hear more about! Hope you enjoy listening in as we talk fiber!

  1. Hi Kathy,
    Just got your email alert and went straight to the podcast. Loved every minute of stitching and listening. Please sign me up for a mounting class! Welcome back to the Midwest.

  2. Hi Kathy.
    I listened to the podcast first thing this morning. I truly enjoyed it. A class on mounting would be great although, since I don’t drive, I don’t know if I would be able to attend. Your discussion about City and Guilds vs. RSN was interesting.

  3. What a delightful conversation to listen to. Some things that I found interesting was not always getting hung up on perfection in my stitching. I do find that I try and duplicate a design to the T. stitch by stitch, exact thread etc….yet, I kind of enjoy that. I aim for precise execution.

    It’s also good to hear that we all have our projects that did not turn out as we were expecting and most of the time when we are looking at the designers finished work that there was a lot of experimenting that went into the final piece.

    I’m looking forward to upcoming classes that you will be offering in your home.

  4. Lovely podcast Kathy! And I am glad I am not the only one who feels a little lonely in Germany as a surface embroiderer and needlepointer :). Good luck with setting up your studio and the new classes you are going to run there!
