About Tightly Spun
Tightly Spun was inspired by YOU, the everyday knitter. You are a valuable member of the knitting community, and your story is important! How does knitting fit into your daily life? What is your favorite project? What other things in life make you happy? Together we will paint a picture of your knitting life for listeners. Sometimes the conversation may get a little bit into politics and faith, but I promise to keep it light and inclusive. Fiber artists of all walks of life are welcome here, and, just like plies of yarn in a single strand, we are stronger together!
One thing that is very important to me in creating the Tightly Spun podcast is making a piece of media that will be timeless for listeners. I love knitting podcasts, but I wanted to steer the focus away from the latest and greatest designs and yarns, interviewing famous fiber artists and gushing over recent purchases, and bring it back to finding joy in the simple act of creating with yarn. My goal is to leave listeners inspired to work on projects that they already know will make them happy.
I also hope to use this website and podcast as a way to connect fiber artists with charities that distribute knitted goods to those in need. Knitters are among the most generous people I know, and I would love to help you all spread the warmth to others.

It's incredibly easy to be on the podcast. All you need is a phone and about 45 minutes to answer a few questions. I will record our conversation and edit it down to make it cohesive. The same questions will be asked of every person who participates, giving you a chance to review the questions and think of your answers ahead of time.
