Season 2 Ep 9 - Yarn in Ireland Panel Live at Woollinn

The latest episode of the podcast is something special and I am so glad that I can share it with all of you. This is the first time that my personal blog/podcast has overlapped with my work and I am delighted to be able to share the Yarn in Ireland panel recorded live on stage at Woollinn on the show. Woollinn is Dublin's Festival of Yarn and it was held on May 25th and 26th 2018 in the ALSAA complex right beside Dublin Airport. This is evident in the recording as you can hear the odd plane flying low overhead. This is the first time we have had a festival of this kind in Dublin and the first time (to my knowledge) that a panel has been formed of independent professionals to speak on the current state of yarn in Ireland today. We wanted to celebrate how rich in talent we are here in Ireland and if anything, I think we can all agree that this panel was too short and I promise, I am already working on making this topic more widely available.
