Thanks so much Sarah for this great podcast with Rebecca! I listened while working on my little Hokett loom and I thoroughly enjoyed the questions you asked, I learned so much. I am in Rebecca’s Little Looms online class but your podcast inspired me to delve deeper into my own process. I can’t wait to hear the episodes I have missed. Thanks again for this great podcast!
