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.
