Welcome to the Cottage Notebook Podcast, a bi- monthly podcast with host Nadia Seaver. The podcast started out from the spare room of the cottage and has gone so much further than I dreamed of. This is the place where I like to share all the things I love with all of you. Here you will find solocasts and interviews about crafts, gardening and there might be a teeny bit of toddler talk.  If you are interested in just the Vlog’s then choose the YouTube button below. The audio interviews allow my guests to bring you into their world for a short time. Ever wonder what it’s like to be a knitwear designer, editor, dollmaker, horticulturist, allotmenteer, craft writer or blogger? Then choose a podcast episode and find out more:
