In this episode we chat with Maggie Schnücker – an embroidery artist from Texas – about her beautiful work and her new book. Gina also gives me some advice for what to do (or not do) when I’m feeling overwhelmed, and talks about her recent surprise win. And inspired by Maggie’s Diversion and Distraction we talk about the lost art of letter writing.
