Upper Canada Fibreshed – Episode 1


Welcome to our first episode of Woolcast! Hooray! Listen to our conversation with Jennifer Osborn and Becky Porlier of Upper Canada Fibreshed. We chat about our local Ontario fibreshed, where the idea for their non profit organization came from, and what they are trying to achieve. We also touched a bit on textile production history, a flax growing project, and the state of our wool industry. This conversation was initially recorded as part of the Field To Fashion movie production, so please excuse low volumes on my vocals and extraneous noises. Enjoy the episode!

Woolcast is coming soon!

Recording Woolcast

We are so excited to start working on the podcast about farmers, fibres, and folk! At first, we go local by interviewing Ontario producers, crafters, yarn lovers, and anyone who is passionate about wool. This journey will be a learning curve, not only about wool industry, but podcasting itself. Who knew that there were so many thing involved with recording conversations ?!? Please bear with us while we get our crash-courses on audio editing and record our first podcast. This is all very exciting!
