Welcome to Episode 364! Below, you’ll find show notes with embedded time stamps and links to project pages, patterns, and other things I’ve mentioned. I use non-Ravelry links when possible, but any link preceded by an asterisk means that it does go to Ravelry, so be aware of that if Rav is not an accessible place for you. All of my contact/website/social media info is listed at the end of the show notes!
Intro – It’s a bit long this week as I offer my PSA regarding what NOT to do when faced with a phishing scam. Yeah. Ask me how I learned this. Sigh.

Allentown Virtual Fiber Festival is this weekend, Friday 4/9 – Sunday 4/11. You can find the full Zoom schedule and info about vendors here:
https://www.allentownfiberfestival.com/ or on the FB page here:
https://www.facebook.com/allentownfiberfestivalInfo is also posted on the @allentownfiberfestival Instagram account.
I’ll be doing a half hour Zoom on Sunday, 4/11, at 2 p.m. eastern. Please join me! See the above website for the link to the Zoom in the schedule.
All items that I’m posting new in the shop for the show weekend will go live on Friday at 6 p.m. eastern. I’ll be offering free US shipping all weekend, Friday through Sunday. Also, several of the items I’ll have in the shop will be dye-to-orders, but since this is a festival weekend, I’m deviating from my usual shipping policy and I’ll be shipping any of your in-stock items now and then your DTO items when they are done. I didn’t mention it in the podcast, but I will be debuting a new colorway this weekend, in honor of the show. It’ll be called East-West…look for it in the shop on Friday at 6 p.m.!
Also, I mentioned that I’ll be offering the pre-orders for the 2021 Holiday Countdown mini sets either in May or June. Pre-orders will be open for a month once they go up, so you’ll have plenty of time to order! Stay tuned!
41:05 – What’s bringing me joy this week!
Got my 2nd Covid vaccine…yay!
My mom will be visiting at the end of the month…yay!
My family has been awesome and so supportive of me this past week while I dealt with all of the bank stuff and back pain.
