part 2 Stitchery Stories Live at Podcast Social Club Wide Art

This is PART TWO of the Stitchery Stories LIVE recording at the Podcast Social Club!

Please listen to PART ONE before listening to this – it won’t make any sense if you haven’t heard Part One!

This is the second half of the live recording.

It was a lot of fun chatting with my two lovely guests, CarolAnn J Allan and Mary-Ann Toop about fabric and threads, creativity and our well-being. It was also a step out of collective comfort zones to be doing this live in front of a ticket-bearing audience 🙂

Waiting to start Stitchery Stories Live Guests

Thank you to Podcast Social Club for inviting us and for organising such an interesting event. We were honoured to be taking part.

Anyway, we chatted around our cornerstone topics and as usual had a laugh doing so. We also had an interesting discussion about the emotional and social and mental health benefits of stitching and creativity.

Sue had 2 amusing contributions… a recent ‘disaster’ and a very old UnFinished Object.
