3 Craft Podcast Recommendations

When I'm crafting I can usually be found watching iplayer or a DVD, but more recently I have discovered craft podcasts. Here are three of my favourite craft and knitting podcast discoveries so far...

This is a brilliant podcast aimed at creative folk and small creative business owners covering a huge range of topics from social media, growing your business, managing your time, blogging and so much more. Through the podcasts Elise aims to motivate and inspire, discussing topics with guests who share their expertise in their particular subject. The episodes are extensive and I'm really enjoying listening- they really do motivate, inspire and make you think. I highly recommend having a listen if you are a small creative business owner 

A friend recommended the KnitBritish podcast and what a treat it is to listen to! Louise who hosts the podcast has a passion for British wool and tries to knit with as much British grown and produced wool as possible, blogging and creating podcasts to promote her beautiful discoveries. The first episode I listened to was this one in which Louise travels to Shetland to visit Jamieson's of Shetland, interviewing the Jamieson family who share an insight into their woolen mill and the processes involved in producing the yarn. The accents and dialect really take you on a journey to Shetland- I'd love to visit even more now! I'm so looking forward to listening to more episodes

Kate from A Playful Day writes a blog and produces podcasts based on a variety of creative subjects, featuring inspirational interviews with creatives discussing topics from exploring the terms maker vs crafter and Craftivism. I've found the episodes I've listened to so far really insightful and Kate's blog is a lovely read and full of beautiful images too!

If you have any recommendations for craft podcasts, share them in the comments below and I can add them to the list!


  1. Thank you for sharing this, it never occurred to me to listen to podcasts while I'm sewing into the small hours in my craft room! Thank you.

  2. I have just set up my own blog too, I'm new to sewing and all things crafty, well I've returned after many years away letting life get in the way. Please take a look at my blog if you can stand to watch me playing it by ear.

  3. Hi Sharon, I hope you enjoy listening to podcasts while you're crafting! Thank you for sharing your blog, I'm looking forward to having a read. Don't worry,we're all playing it by ear really, I think the most important thing is to just enjoy what you do! Happy crafting!

    1. Thank you Louise. I just bought a new machine so I am busy discovering what it can and can't do. So although I am a little busy, I shall most definitely posting on my blog again soon. I hope you like what I have put on there, I'm very new to this, so it will take a little for me to find my way around it. 😀
