A mock up of a podcast play screen. featuring Katie Stack holding a ball peen hammer.

The Second Full-Length Episode!

This episode, I speak with Katie Stack, creative and owner of Stitch & Rivet. She makes the most amazing leather and waxed canvas bags. Katie also talks about having a ~*career in the arts*~ talking to people who say “you’ll never do much with a career in the arts,” and developing boundaries in your daily routine (whether you are a creative or not). Katie also shares why you should always spay and neuter your pets.

Lindsey’s Pre-Recording Note

Katie is a successful, flexible, creative, and tenacious business owner….basically everything I aspire to be. I also know that she’s heard the question “you’re going into the ARTS?!” where arts is more like a dirty word, more than once. I admire her, and I know once you hear from her, you will too!
