Hello! Here you will learn more about the Yarn Thing Podcast with Marly Bird, how to sign up and what would be required of you. We look forward to having you as a guest on the podcast!
About The Yarn Thing Podcast
The Yarn Thing Podcast with Marly Bird was the first crochet podcast on iTunes and to this day is the only podcast (that we know of) that talks about knitting and crochet equally. Starting in 2018, the audio podcast is now a video podcast!
If you don’t know Marly she is a knit and crochet designer, teacher, author, host of the Yarn Thing Podcast and an influencer for Yarnspirations (formerly the National Spokesperson of Red Heart Yarns).
The Yarn Thing Podcast is a platform for knit and crochet lovers to learn more about businesses, designers, and tools in the industry. Through the podcast we strive to bring our followers new things they might not have known about. Sharing is caring and when we work together to talk about everything in the industry we are making each other better.
How the Podcast Works
The Yarn Thing podcast is run on Tuesday mornings at 10am MST. The show is no more than an hour long, depending on where the conversation goes. This is a LIVE event that is hosted on the Marly Bird YouTube channel.
With the show being live you are able to show any of your products or kits or anything about your process.
Before the show a Zoom link will be sent to you to join the call with Marly. When you are both there and things have been checked that they are working Marly will stream the video live on her YouTube channel.
You can find past Yarn Thing Podcast episodes on the show notes page of the site. This is a great place to look if you would like to see how things work. Overall the podcast is a casual conversation between you and Marly learning about each other and what you have new to share.
What is Required of the Guest
One of the most fun things about the Yarn Thing Podcast is that we give away prizes!!!
Each guest that comes on the show typically offers two giveaways. One to a live watcher and one to a comment winner later on. This can really be anything that you like. It could be the book/yarn/supply/tool that we are talking about or it could be free patterns as well.
We ask that if you come on the show you will do the following promotion:
- Share at least one FB post before the event
- At least one FB the day of the event
- At least one Blog post linking back to our show notes (this is where they can enter to winner after the live show)
- Sample of the book/yarn/item/supply that you will be talking about
