If you love BBC Radio 4, and the spoken word, you may have already discovered the delights of podcasts, which are the growing in popularity around the world. Phillipa is, this week, the guest of the British podcast ‘Stitchery Stories’ hosted by Susan Weeks.
Podcasts are audio programmes you can download to listen at your pleasure, and they have more time for more extended interviews and often delve a little deeper into the subject. In the 45-minute interview Phillipa's conversation with Susan describes the story of her career and her progression as a needlework designer.
Phillipa said: "I was very flattered to be invited to create a Stitchery story podcast. It was lovely to chat about all things historic crewel work, the needlework community and the international appeal of embroidery.
"It was interesting to be interviewed by a fellow needlework enthusiast, and of course Susan is a very experienced podcaster who encourages the very best from her guests.
"It was a great opportunity to share the ethos and the development of the Crewel Work Company and Lady Anne’s Needlework Retreats."
Susan said: "Phillipa is such a wonderful guest. I'm sure everyone will greatly enjoy listening to her stories and insight from her many years of tutor and designer experience."
