A Guernsey girl shares her love of everything creative and handmade. Episodes cover a wide variety of crafts including knitting, food, photography and much more. The show also includes a generous helping of Guernsey culture too. So go on, join in - share the handmade love and celebrate the sheer joy of making stuff. Show notes can be found at

It's episode 48 of the iMake podcast! Thanks for tuning in. This show features my recent creative exploits, a new knitalong and some crafty chatter with the Guru of Gift-Making, Charles. There's also a great giveaway and some very useful information, for people who frequent pub quizzes, relating to Bob, and the fact that he's your father's brother (don't ask!) Please grab a project and have a listen.
