Interview on WIBW

June 26, 2008 at 4:50 am 1 comment

We had the opportunity today to be interviewed by Ralph Hipp of Channel 13 News here in Topeka. While I spoke to Mr. Hipp, three other members got to crochet in the background.

Nerves ran high in the beginning, especially for me since I knew I would do all of the talking, but when you’re as passionate about something as I am crochet and this group, you don’t let the nerves get the best of you. I couldn’t have done it without my three sidekicks who literally had my back. Thanks to Sue, Marilyn, and Kathy, my nerves were a little less intense knowing they were there. We had the chance to promote our group and the art of crochet to the community. Ralph was awesome and is still more than willing to help us promote this group and our charitable efforts. It was a fun experience–one I’m sure we’d all do again to support our cause. One I hope opens to us later as we get more established.

We also received some publicity through WIBW’s web site, when they posted this one the web after our interview was over:

Special thanks goes out to these guys, especially to Ralph, for allowing us this opportunity.
