This week we have a listener question: “I need to impose my own deadlines to keep me on track. But how do I balance my need for a deadline against my inevitable angst when I can’t meet them?”

Welcome to our podcast for all stitchers, embroiderers, textile artists and creative souls, where we have friendly informal conversations about what it actually means to be an artist working in textiles.

Isobel and Gina are both practicing artists and tutors specialising in machine embroidery, but we’re still figuring it all out! We chat about combining the creative process with running a business and hope that you will find inspiration and support for your own creative journeys.
