Thanks for viztin'! You're obviously a person (or sheep) of exquisite taste and discerning mind, in search of extra and exclusive content. Let's start with a bonus introduction.

Who are you?
My name is Madeline. I'm the shepherdess; there's a good chance you knew that. I'm a bi-racial Canadian, raised in Oregon, Jewish (but raised by conservative Christians), adopted (obviously), former classical musician, published author, speaker, and wife who fell into sheep while training Thoroughbreds. And if that doesn't hook ya.... For the last ten years, I've been a shepherdess, fiber artist, workshop instructor, shearer, lobbyist, agricultural advisor, podcaster, fiber ambassador, and general badass. Basically, if Louise Belcher and Katherine Hepburn had a baby and that baby bought a farm, I'm that. Fun fact: I'm also allergic to chameleons.

What's Ballyhoo Fiber Emporium?
1. An actual brick and mortar general store, built in 1929. The home of Ballyhoo fiber, workshops, farm events, and production.
2. A podcast for fiber artists and producers. Do you wear clothes? Do you have anxiety, like to laugh, knit alone in the dark like a dog, appreciate sarcasm, or like to think? THIS SHOW IS FOR YOU!!!

If the quality and creativity of Ballyhoo Fiber Emporium has become a valuable part of your life, please consider becoming a voluntary subscriber here on Patreon. You are the reason I do this podcast, and your participation makes continued variety and consistency possible. THANK YOU FOR LISTENING!

Why Should I?
A lot goes into making a quality podcast: researching guests, scheduling and holding interviews, editing audio, adding special touches, mixing sound, and uploading. I don't get paid for it, and I LOVE producing the show for you! Not only that, I am committed to community-funding this endeavor so you NEVER have to listen to boring commercials.

It takes about 4x the time to edit each podcast episode as the length of the interview you hear!

Here's your chance to earn some quality karma and get instant gratification! Click on the orange button. You'll get extra, unfiltered, guaranteed meaningful content for your money. Not all of it is fiber related; there are current events, recipes, feelings (yuck), music, stories, videos.... I promise to make you laugh and cry. Click it. You know you want to. And...GO!
