Speaking of Podcasts – Eileen Adler just shared this with me – Fiber Hooligan. It’s been on hiatus for five years, and now Benjamin Levisay (head of XRX) is back with a number of interesting fiber-related interviews. The older ones may be available.
Quilting Enthusiasts – To learn about various quilting events, visit our Ravelry group and check out the thread called “Quilting Enthusiasts”. Unfortunately, many planned events have been canceled or postponed.
Visions Art Museum – Visions is a great quilt and textile museum in Liberty Station. While its focus is largely on art quilts, there have been other fiber art exhibits, including lace, knitting, and crochet. Find them on the web at VisionsArtMuseum.org.
