Today on the Dear Handmade Life podcast we’re talking to Los Angeles-based fine artist and embroidery designer Jenny Hart of Sublime Stitching about the evolution of the handmade movement and DIY world. We talk about what this movement looked like back when we started our creative businesses 20 years ago, how to recapture the sense of community and camaraderie we felt back then, how technology, resources and social media have changed the way we make things and run our businesses, the affects of the creativity cycle being shorter and the immediacy of trends, the push to constantly put out new content, the importance of keeping your head down and getting to work and so much more!
The drink of episode is Stone brewing Co.’s Xocoveza.
