What an honor to have the incredible Sarah K Benning discuss the highs and lows of running a creative business on season 5 of the Merriweather Council Podcast! I have admired her work as an embroidery artist and small business owner for years now and she is so inspiring.
On this episode we are chatting about so many things. I loved hearing her journey from art student to business owner and now, co-author! And you will hear all about it as well.
If you have spent any time on Instagram or in maker communities you are likely familiar with Sarah’s hand embroidery work. It is detailed and intricate and whimsical. Of course, we spoke all about running a creative business, her inspiration, process and struggles not only with her work but with social media and running a small business. We also spoke about her incredibly successful pattern program and why she’s decided to end it (for now!) There is so much to learn from in this episode.
Sarah’s book has just recently been released and it is the most perfect companion for snuggling up with a cup of coffee on a Sunday afternoon this October. What a dreamy, beautiful book it is! Get your copy here – you are in for a real treat with this.
Be sure to follow Sarah on Instagram and visit her website to see more of her work for sale.
