Episdoe 10 - MK talks with Kristi
Founder Kristi Schroeder Larson is putting a modern spin on an ancient practice. Kristi left her corporate graphic design job to start Initial K Studio in 2014, delved into the world of quilting, authored a book called Southwest Modern, and hasn’t looked back. After the birth of her second child, she found relief in the rhythmic nature of needlepoint, which she used as a more portable outlet while being a mom on the move. This Texas native has transformed her love of needlepoint into a more accessible art, giving people the opportunity to find creative outlets in a world with often far too much screen time. Fall in love with her collection of needlepoint canvases at www.initialkstudio.com or view her latest work on instagram @initialkstudio
