Welcome to the CLN 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. The 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:
