Episode 35: Longest Acquisitions Segment Ever

June 8, 2021

News: The Stripes in Space Shawl MKAL has officially blasted off and will run through the end of July!  See our social media and Patreon posts to lean more!


We will have our travel vlog content available for free on the Fiber Coven YouTube channel in the upcoming weeks.


Emily’s partner is helping start up the Louisville Jazz Initiative, which is striving to bring both Jazz music education and live Jazz performances to those who normally don’t have access to Jazz instruction and/or performances.  If you can help them out financially, they have a matching fund from Churchill Downs so your contribution will automatically be doubled!
