Felt companions and MASSIVE maker growth with Jo Hobbs | WAMCAST #0069

Welcome to the We Are Makers Podcast, where we sit down with the world's most exceptional creators to unravel their inspiring origin stories, delve into what makes them tick, and explore how they navigate the realms of making and selling their extraordinary products. These independent makers and artists have strayed from the conventional 9-5 path, dedicating their lives to their craft and building the life they desire through their artistry and craftsmanship.

In our 68th episode, we are thrilled to bring you the journey of Jo Hobbs, affectionately known as Curly Jo in the vast expanse of the internet. Our initial encounter with Jo was in our printed edition, precisely in March 2022, in Edition 4. Back then, she had fewer than 10k followers on Instagram. Jo graciously credits We Are Makers as a pivotal force that instilled the confidence in her to pursue her craft full-time. Fast forward, Jo has soared to nearly a quarter of a million followers and established a highly successful business.

Join us as Jo shares her entire story, from her early days as a crafty, creative kid to a poignant bereavement that rekindled her connection to craft and making. Hear about her journey of settling on the unique path of replicating people's beloved pet companions in felt.

Jo Hobbs is not just an incredible artist; she's a joy to be around. Her story is one of resilience, creativity, and the pursuit of a life filled with purpose and passion. We are immensely grateful for Jo's time and support, and we can't wait for you to be inspired by her journey.

Thank you for tuning in and being a part of the We Are Makers community. Your time and support mean the world to us.
