What is Fiber Beat? ~~
Fiber Beat is not your regular knitting podcast. In fact, it covers a range of crafts using the fiber medium, such as spinning, weaving, felting, dyeing, shepherding, & crocheting. You can expect interviews with designers, authors, farmers, & businesses. WonderMike, editor-in-chief and intrepid reporter presents instructional video podcasts as well as product reviews. If you have a story, you'd like to share, give WonderMike a shout on Ravelry or leave a comment in the show notes!


Sponsoring Fiber Beat ~~
Fiber Beat is now accepting sponsorship. If you'd like to underwrite the show, please contact WonderMike who can give you rates and options.


Production Assistance ~~
Fiber Beat is a labor of journalistic love that requires considerable preparation, both before and after the actual interview. We use various audio/computer equipment to record, edit and publish each episode of the show. Your donations make this work possible. Thank you very much!!!

Media Link: MFKR Photo Mantage (5:32)

Fiber Beat Video Supplement #10, "MFKR Photo Mantage"

There's a million crafters in Fiber City and we've all got a yarn to spin.


For this video supplement, I've created a photo MAN-tage of images from the Men's Fall Knitting Retreat from 2008 & 2009

An original composition called "Long Live Happiness" from the band "A Night of Serious Drinking" was used for this video. The band is sadly no longer making music, but I still love this song, and their work in general, to pieces. I thought the lyrics were eerily appropriate for the photo mantage, so we've placed them in the video piece

Performed by A Night of Serious Drinking:
Anthony Bonet
– vocals, guitar and keyboards
Mark Yahnke
– vocals, bass and keyboards
Bennett Green
– drums
Produced and Engineered by Greg Freeman
Additional production by Anthony Bonet


DON'T FORGET => The first ever Fiber Beat SCHOLARSHIP for Episode No. 10 / MFKR 2010

This year, the Men's Fall Knitting Retreat will be held just outside of Seattle in the City of Federal Way at the Dumas Bay Centre. We still have regular paid slots available with all the costing details on Ravelry and on Flickr. However, we are thrilled to announce have a special scholarship to the Men's Fall Knitting Retreat, provided by XRX, Inc. This scholarship includes full retreat fees plus a stipend of $400 for travel and transportation. You can nominate a friend, a family member or yourself. Please confirm that your person has agreed to be entered into the nomination process. A sample nomination will be the first entry in the comments section of the audio episode.


One scholarship recipient will be selected from all the nominations by a panel of Men's Knitting Retreat coordinators (Joe Wilcox, Ted Myatt, James Herbison & myself). DEADLINE FOR ENTERING IS August 6, 2010.

A big manly thank you to everyone who downloaded and listened to the first SEVENTEEN episodes (audio/video) of Fiber Beat. Let me know what you think and leave a review on iTunes!
