The LoveCrafts Show is back, bigger and better than before! This time with a super special guest who we’re just dying for you to meet. Sit back, relax, grab your WIP and settle in for a good old catch up with Uncle X and Merino!

This month we introduce you to the delightful Debbie Bliss, in all her fabulous glory! Merion and Jamie look back on Debbie’s 40+ years in the industry and everything she’s learnt about being a maker!

The LoveCrafts Show also chatted about sharing the love not just one day a year, but every day of the year (Oh Jamie you old romantic!) and with those you love romantically and platonically, hello Galentine’s day! Find out how we’re celebrating, and what’s coming up next in the beautiful world of Debbie Bliss. With plenty of #BlissBantz thrown in! 

Tips, tricks, advice and a fair amount of silliness, this is The LoveCrafts Show!

We want to hear about your Valentine's stories (happy or sad!), your inspiring women, and what you want to see on The LoveCrafts Show next!

Send all your thoughts, questions and reflections via email at show@lovecrafts.com or you can send us a voice message!

Debbie Bliss

That's Not My Age

I've known my next podcast guest, Debbie Bliss, for many years. We met last century when I was a fashion assistant stepping in for the fashion editor to style one of Debbie's knitting pattern books. The most published knitwear designer in the world has over 35 books, 20 booklets, her own range of yarns and her own knitting magazine. If you want to know anything about knitting, Debbie Bliss is your woman. After working together, we initially kept in touch but living at opposite ends of the Victoria Line came between us, so I am thrilled to have made contact with her again. She cares deeply about democratic design, carefully develops collections to complement the qualities of each yarn - and is very, very funny.

In this That's Not My Age podcast episode, Debbie talks movingly about having breast cancer, which has seen her undergo a mastectomy, lymph node removal and over six months of chemotherapy and radiotherapy. 'Anyone who has ever had cancer will understand, you're never quite removed from the fear that it will come back, and you'll have to go through it all again,' she says. 'People tell people who have been diagnosed to be positive; but I think that bring realistic works better for me.'
