Louise sais: 
I am super excited that we have a lot of podcasters visiting EYF this year, and coming from all over. There will be some returning friends, like Vero from Along the Lanes and Helen, from Curious HandmadeYarn in the CityThe Geeky Girls. I’m also hoping we can steal Nathan Taylor, The Sockmatician and Felix Ford, AKA KNITSONIK, away after their classes for a wee shmooze. We also have a lot of podcasters coming for the first time and I know you will join us in welcoming…
