Continuing with my series on slow making, today’s podcast guest is Mark Lipinski of Pickle Road Studios. After a career in television production, including shows like Oprah, the View, Crossing Over and Sally Jesse Raphael, Mark decided to follow his creative passion and enter the quilting world. Never content to stay on the sidelines, Mark founded and edited Quilters Home magazine, co-host of Quilting Out Loud (a television show about quilting), hosted an internet radio station called Creative Mojo, formed the Slow Stitching Movement, while designing fabric and patterns. Through his laid back style and vast experience, Mark has entertained and inspired countless quilters. He is also a devoted father and supported by his life partner. After discovering Mark had a genetic kidney disease, he has changed his creative practice to support his refined sense of self and place. During our discussion, we talk about how the industry has changed since he became involved, how he balances his life as a “sewlebrity”, why he started the slow stitching movement and more. I hope you enjoy this thoughtful interview.
