In 2020 I started a podcast with fellow textile artist Gina Ferrari, for all stitchers, embroiderers, textile artists and creative souls. We haven’t recorded for a while now, but you can still listen in to our friendly and informal conversations about what it actually means to be an artist working in textiles.

Gina and I are practicing artists and both started our careers as tutors specialising in machine embroidery. We’ve both diverged from our starting points, yet 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.
