    #55 Satsuma Street's Jody Rice

    #55 Satsuma Street's Jody Rice

    This week on the show is needle arts designer, Jody Rice. Jody’s company Satsuma Street was founded after unsuccessful searches for modern cross-stitch patterns inspired her to design them herself. Her background in both textiles and graphic arts made this a relatively natural transition, so she created a collection. She began to make those patterns available for digital download on Etsy in 2013 and was blown away by the response. She had found craft community need, and filled it!

    Host Vickie Howell discovered Jody’s work when one of her besties was working on a Satsuma Street piece while their families were on vacation together last Summer. During their conversation, they talked about Jody's transition from working on blockbuster films to running a handmade business, her design approach, and what she does to block out all of the social media noise when it comes to her art.

Wise creative

Way more than a stitch of inspiration. Not merely smart, but grounded and deeply thoughtful. Vickie shares her wisdom and illuminates the spirit within people and their endeavors. Have a listen.
