Where Women CreateJo Packham started her publishing career at her kitchen table 30 years ago, developing her idea for cross-stitch publications. In January she joined forces with Kellene Giloff and Jenny Doh of Stampington & Company's Somerset Studio to develop a magazine about the studios and galleries of women who create. The first issue includes 11 women who have built businesses and communities around them.
"So you now hold in your hands one of my oldest, most treasured dreams and if you are a woman who creates, then this is your magazine; a thousand stories told from the hearts and hands of as many women. No matter what you make or what medium you use, this is your safe haven, this is a gallery to showcase your wares, a classroom to learn something new, a source of motivation, reassurance, and inspiration."
Whew! All I want is a few more bookshelves. I don't even have draperies, and my walls are beige with my husband's and my paintings. I can't even imagine working in these types of studios, but there ya go! Something for everyone!
