Where to begin: seven years ago, after learning how to knit one of the first magazines I ever picked up was Knitter's Magazine. Since then it has been one of my favorite mags. When I discovered that the publishers of Knitter's were also the publishers of some of my 'best of the best' list of books as well...I became an even bigger fan of XRX inc. So, imagine my surprise (and giddiness) when two years ago I was sitting next to the CEO of XRX in a shuttle bus from LAX on our way to TNNA. We had a wonderful conversation and I knew he had to join me for a podcast interview. When I asked him if he would be interested in joining me for a Yarn Thing episode and he said "Absolutely". Yes, it has been two years since that fateful car ride but my relationship with XRX has done nothing but grow. I had the opportunity to go to my first STITCHES EXPO last month and I have to tell you it was EVERYTHING it has been advertised as. As a knitter and crocheter I am here to tell you that if you have a chance to go to any of the STITCHES around the country you MUST go! From the fashion show to the classes offered to the show room floor there is nothing lacking! It is simply amazing. (FYI: I will be in Atlanta next month so stop by to say hi at the Bijou Basin Ranch booth) It was after STITCHES West that we decided it was time to finally do that podcast episode we talked about so long ago. So without further wait, please join me as I talk to Benjamin Levisay about all things XRX!
