Welcome to my podcast: Izzy & Gina... in stitches

Fellow textile artist Isobel Moore and I indulge in informal chat about art, embroidery and life in general, aimed at all stitchers, embroiderers, artists and creative souls.  We discuss what it actually means to be an artist working primarily in textiles.

Izzy and I 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.

You can find us on iTunes and Spotify.
