I’m very excited that this stand is the incentive for listeners of Craftlit that donate during the months of September and October. CraftLit: A Podcast for Crafters Who Love Books is an amazing podcast produced my Heather Ordover. If you took a listen to episode one of my podcast you probably know about Craftlit already. In Heather’s own words think “books on tape with benefits”. Heather is a knitter, writer, producer, author, super creative person that many years ago came up with the great idea of combining great literature with crafty talk. The show features audio books like “Little Women”, “Pride and Prejudice”, “Frankenstein”, “The Scarlet Letter”, and many other great classics of all times. The caveat is that she cleverly (and quite accessibly) dissects the story, giving us a master class in literature each show. There is plenty of feedback and discussion from the audience too. Like I always say it is a very intelligent show that attracts very intelligent listeners.
She’ll be featuring next one of my most favorite books of all times “Dracula”, by Bram Stoker, so if you’re new to Craftlit this is a awesome way to start “test driving the concept. In her site you’ll also find an extensive library of past shows, conveniently indexed for your listening pleasure. Donate any amount to help offset the costs of producing the show between the months of September and October, and you’ll have a chance to win this (if I may say so myself) beautiful TTC stand.
While you’re at it, and if you’re a knitter, take some time to learn about her latest venture, the book What Would Madame Defarge Knit?. Grab the book, some yarn and knitting needles, and set up a true English tea party with stands from the Etsy store!
