Marlaina “Marly” Bird, Designer Extraordinaire
You can tell a lot about Marly Bird just by the hats she wears. She is an avid crocheter and knitter who loves to share her passion with students. Balancing her day as wife, mommy, designer, National Spokesperson for Red Heart yarns, teacher and Yarn Thing Podcast host is a challenge, but Marly wouldn’t change any of it.
The Yarn Thing Podcast with Marly Bird
The Yarn Thing Podcast with Marly Bird (sometimes called Yarnthing) is dedicated to connecting knitters and crocheters together. I interview guests in the industry and sometime just do a show about my own life experiences in this bi-crafty world. Oh ya, I also laugh…A LOT!
Listen Live or Watch the Behind the Scenes of the podcast on the Marly Bird Facebook Page.
