Got Drew (Drew Emborsky)? - Fiber Hooligan Show Notes
04/22/13 7:07 pm
Benjamin's guest on this week's edition of Fiber Hooligan was Drew Emborsky (a.k.a. The Crochet Dude™)... designer, teacher, and an icon in the fiber arts world. Drew joined the show from Houston, TX.
Benjamin welcomed Drew to the show and they talked briefly about the weather (Benjamin complained a bit about the snow) and STITCHES South 2013 which they had just attended the previous week.
Drew talked about learning to crochet from his mother and how he got into the industry--one thing leading to another--until Drew eventually became The Crochet Dude™.
Drew and Benjamin discussed a great many things during the podcast. Here is a brief list of most of the items they covered...
The quote of the show came from Drew when he was talking about all the people that he's designed for: "I guess you could say 'I got around' (smile)." To which Benjamin assured him that there was nothing wrong with that provided that everyone got good value.
Benjamin reminded people about his guest co-hooligan contest was ending at midnight on April 22, 2013. You can read more about that contest in the show notes from the last episode.
Benjamin closed the show with usual parting message… "I'd like to wish you all a glorious week," Benjamin said. "Remember… the only thing better than being creative is being kind to each other. The good news… you can do both. Thank you. I'll see you next week on another edition of Fiber Hooligan."
