Episode 016: Kim Werker
Kim Werker is a writer, editor, instructor and all around smart, creative lady. She is also a self-described camp counselor for grownups – a title we dive into in this episode.
In this conversation Kim shares with us her desire to show everyone that they are creative and how to have fun even when you’re afraid you’re going to fail. She talks about how her frustration with a lack of crochet websites led her to create Crochet Me and how Interweave Press snagged her to be the editor of Interweave Crochet.
Kim also lets us in on how her Year of Making changed her life and turned her into a maker of things. We also talk about whether one should/could be making a profit from a hobby. And for fun we get into a little of this and that, like cold process soap making, bullet journaling, and the fiction that is Pinterest.
In this episode
Kim’s Year of Making was inspired by Miriam Felton. Lisa Congdon taught her how to doodle.
Kim is watching Game of Thrones, The Americans, Suits, Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Once More with Feeling and Stranger Things .
