After 93 well-lived years, Violet MacAskill is ready to simplify her life. Her eccentric solution? She'll throw a decanting and decluttering party at her family home—a Scottish Baronial manor near the seaside town of Inversgail, Scotland. Violet sets aside everything she wants or needs, then she invites her many friends in to sip sherry and help themselves to whatever they want from all that's left.Janet Marsh and Christine Robertson, two of the women who own Yon Bonnie Books in Inversgail, enjoy themselves at the party. Not everyone who attends has a good time, though. Wendy Erskine, director of the Inversgail museum, is found dead, and rumors swirl about food poisoning from a local food truck. Then Violet tells Constable Hobbs that a tin of rat poison is missing. And when Hobbs' own grandmother comes under suspicion for murder, he enlists the women from Yon Bonnie Books, and the race is on to find the murderer.But where do they begin? Are there clues in the “Shocking Stockings” exhibit at the museum? Will the antique scrapbook pasted full of trivia about arsenic and bygone poisoners offer a solution? Or does the answer lie closer to home—is one of Violet's friends truly toxic? Poisonous games are afoot in Inversgail and the women of Yon Bonnie Books are playing to win.About Molly MacRaeMolly MacRae writes the Highland Bookshop Mysteries, about four women who reinvent their lives when they buy a bookshop in Inversgail on the west coast of Scotland, and the award-winning Haunted Yarn Shop Mysteries, about a textile preservation specialist in Blue Plum, Tennessee, who ends up with a depressed ghost on her hands.Molly spent twenty years in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in northeast Tennessee, where she managed the Book Place, an independent bookstore; may it rest in peace. Before the lure of books hooked her, she was the curator of the history museum in Jonesborough, Tennessee's oldest town. Her short stories have appeared in Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine for more than twenty years, and she won the Sherwood Anderson Award for Short Fiction. Molly lives with her family in Champaign, Illinois, where she connects children with books at the public library.
In this episode, there will be some crafting, some adventure, I'll have a story. When I set out to record, I had no plan other than to get it out there.
Ann Frank of Crossing Centuries joins us this week and, to celebrate, she has created “Ode to the Gourd, a free chart for you to download from Ann’s website home page or by going directly to the download page using wetalkfiber.com/gourd.

COVID may have caught public health officials by surprise when it broke out more than two years ago but they've had time to learn lessons and prepare for future outbreaks of different diseases. Now, monkeypox cases are growing to the point where the World Health Organization just declared it a global health emergency. We go In Depth into whether public health is ready for monkeypox. A top Russian official now says the goal is to get rid of Ukraine's government. But is Russia capable of doing that? It seems the Christmas shopping season starts earlier and earlier. Well, the same thing is happening when it comes to the Fall like Halloween and your favorite pumpkin-flavored drink or food. The new Sixth Street Viaduct just opened and police have already had to shut it down a few times because of crazy antics and street takeovers. We go In Depth into why people just can't behave on the bridge. A new poll suggests people might be losing faith in our justice system. Is the Supreme Court to blame for that? #Grandmaera. It's a new hashtag as younger women adopt the hobbies traditionally taken up by grandmas such as crocheting and knitting.

Marsha's Projects: Happiness by Kyle Kunnecke using Yarn Snob PowerBall in the colorway Happiness. I've been knitting this sweater exclusively and have knit about 7” of the total 9” needed to start armhole shaping. Spinning: I'm still spinning the Manx Loaghton. I have spun 768 yards, or 15.2 ounces, of a 2 pound bag of roving. I finished spinning the fiber I blended on my new blending board from Celestial Farms. I have about 250 yards of worsted weight. I still have some learning to do but it sure has been fun experimenting with the board. Started spinning the two 8 ounce braids I bought at Black Sheep Gathering. A corriedale cross and 70/30 merino/silk. I have finished one skein, a two ply of each single, and have about 260 yards/2.6 ounces. Kelly's Projects: Previously I had finished the Oxford blend that I had made with mohair and silk noil (about 600 yards of worsted weight) and I finished off a 3-ply sock weight with the Santa Cruz Island fleece that had been carded (about 2 ounces). I finished the 70/30 merino silk plied with the Huckleberry Knits fiber close out. I love the way it turned out. I used the extra of the merino silk to make a skein that was just a two-ply of that yarn. About 8 ounces of the first batch and 4 ounces of the leftovers. I finished plying the Columbia fleece blended with tussah silk top. I got about 10 ounces of yarn. I'm currently carding a black Shetland fleece (~3 lbs). I also started sorting and skirting the California Red fleece that I got at the Black Sheep Gathering. Recommendation Kath and Kim on Netflix Summer Spin-In Started June 1 and goes until September 5.

All we need is one special person in our life to change our destiny. When Irina mentioned that her grandmother had taught her to sew, I knew there was something very telling about her maternal role models in her life. Irina introduces us to her mother, Etya and Grandmother Beyla, who was a seamstress. Unfortunately, Etya's father died when she was a young teen in Russia.Etya was born and lived in Russia till the age of 25. She was one of three children, came from a poor family at a time when it was difficult to be successful in Russia. Etya was the kind of child that "always wanted more than what was available," says my guest about her mom.My guest, Irina was born in Russia and came to America as a Jewish refugee when 2 1/12 years old. What is it like to grow up with a mother who always thought of herself first? "She told me I that I was worthless and stupid all the time" says Lester of her mother. "I was always in her way and she was always exhausted by me." Irina says she developed survival skills at a very young age.It wasn't until Beyla, Irina's grandmother, insisted on taking her granddaughter to her place of work as a seamstress or to her home, "where she felt safe, loved and cared for and allowed to be a kid," continues Lester. This is when and how Irina's life started to turn around. I know that there are many children that never get this lifeline through out their life. Irina got lucky but there certainly are many scars that she wears with frustration, hurt and humility.Previously divorced and a single mom, Irina struggled to care for her young daughter, so she's familiar with what her mother experienced, but it doesn't mean that you have the right to mistreat and/or abuse your child because you are a narcissist. "The local Yarn Store", in large part, is due to the influence her grandmother had on my guest's life. Beyla introduced Irina to embroidering and hand stitching and so much more. Irina says, "my grandmother taught me to appreciate the beauty and the creative process and the functionality of the basics of clothing." Luckily, Irina inherited her grandmother's sewing machine and is now an avid knitter.Hear the full story when you listen to this episode of SHLTMM. https://thelocalyarnstore.com/https://www.facebook.com/The-Local-Yarn-Store-324924261265048
