Is the Internet taking us back in time? The return of handmade goods

Originally aired Friday, September 19, 2014

Jody Rice fell in love with needlework as a child. After an unfulfilling series of jobs in film, Rice decided to quit her 9-5 life.

Her online business of digital patterns may sound modern, but Jody feels her colorful, geometric graphics actually get back to where cross-stitch started, thousands of years ago. Jody lives off her business full time, and connects to an entire community who appreciate her reinterpretation of this ancient form of decoration.
