I wanted to welcome you all to CraftLit, a Podcast for Crafters Who Love Books. I imagine you’re here because you like to work with your hands, but you also like to read. If so, this is the place for you! Our program will follow a similar pattern every week. After some introductory comments, a web, magazine, or book review (This week Mason-Dixon Knittng), and perhaps a song, I will include a chapter or two from a book. We will listen to that book until we’re done with it. And because I’m a former English teacher, I’ll give you some things to listen for in the chapters we hear–just to give you something else to do while you’re knitting, spinning, crocheting, weaving, or sewing. Any painters?
Get comfortable. Find your tools. Check the volume, and enjoy, with me, the beginning of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, recorded by Annie Coleman.
Hi there and welcome! I'm glad you found our little corner of the internet. It's a safe place to hang out, listen to a good book, and maybe get a little crafty while you do. CraftLit has been going (almost) weekly since 2006 so we have quite a few books in our Library for you. If one isn't to your liking, I'm sure you'll find another that is. Relax and let your ears do the reading for a bit.
