podcasts Episode 306 January 11, 2023January 11, 2023 by Sara https://www.yarnsatyinhoo.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/01/episode306.ThreadHijack.mp3 Here’s my first attempt using standard quilting techniques like the half-square triangle to create a finished product. Check out the AllWellWorkshop zine for this alphabet, created by Amy Bornman. It has been a few years since I purchased this Alexonver 10-hook loom, but this holiday season, I put it to good use. Working with this gorgeous yarn from KnitSpinFarm in the hoarfrost colorway, improvising on a free pattern by Tin Can Knits. I’ve also been dreaming about the Eun sweater designed by Ane Fiskum Sunde. My friend Dee and I visited the Hunterdon Art Museum to see a textile exhibit called Thread Hijack. We were inspired with ideas for taking thread and stitching in new directions. The exhibit has closed, but there is an engaging video created by the curator with an overview of the six artists featured — two are New Jersey artists!

Great episode -you had me nodding vigorously to my memory of having to learn the hard way where to find the true 1/4″ mark on my sewing machine when quilting. I saw Sarah’s fancy tape on her machine during a fiber trek episode and thought how handy that would have been back then! The Fiber art exhibit sounded wonderful. Loved the playful poem. Thanks for sharing!
Loved the Nostalgia! Your Make Nine choices including other than stitches is inspiring. The picture of Dee’s coat- oh my!! Happy New Year!!
