Episode 81: Weaving Patterns with GIST Yarn Ambassador Mariah Gaar

by Sarah Resnick

 Hi everyone,

Sarah here! Before diving into this week’s episode, I wanted to share some personal news, which is that I am expecting a baby shortly. I plan to take some time off this fall after the baby is born, so you’ll be hearing less of me over the next few months! There are a few more episodes that I pre-recorded that you will hear from me, and after that LaChaun has some wonderful episodes up her sleeves to share with you.

I also just wanted to take this moment to thank you all, truly, for listening to this podcast. We currently have about 25,000 downloads each month from almost 30 countries, which just blows me and LaChaun away. We don’t take it for granted that you invite us into your earbuds or cars or studios, and we are grateful to all of our guests for sharing their stories with us, and to all of you for listening.

This week on the podcast I’m talking to Mariah Gaar, a weaver in Missouri, and also a GIST Yarn Ambassador, which means that she regularly works with our yarn and shares the projects she created with our community. Mariah has designed a number of beautiful projects for our blog, and has more lovely ones up her sleeve that you can expect in the coming months. Comment below to keep the conversation going!
