UPDATE: All applications for available positions must be sent in by Monday night (8/24) at 11:59pm EST. Paper & Stitch is expanding! I haven’t talked much about this yet, but behind the scenes, I’ve been looking for a studio space for the last month or so, and while I haven’t officially put pen to paper on a lease yet, I’m really close (more details soon). Which means I’ll have enough space to work on larger projects and grow the team so that we can continue bringing you bigger and better content.
