Recently, Megan was featured, along with three other woman entrepreneurs, in an article in the July/August edition of More Magazine, a nationally-distributed consumer magazine whose mission is to “celebrate women of style and substance with articles on style, health, work, spirituality and relationships.” It was exciting to pick up a copy of the magazine, read the article, and see the full page photo of Megan.

The story isn’t available online yet, but stop by a newsstand and pick up a copy of the magazine – I think you will enjoy it.

Interestingly enough, after the issue came out, Megan received an email from Cindy Urash of rls art limited in Warsaw, Indiana. After reading the article in More Magazine, Cindy wanted to reach out to Megan to share her own entrepreneurial story.  Below is a portion of her email to Megan:

Hello Megan,

I just finished reading the article about you and your company in the July/August issue of More Magazine and was quite impressed with your tenacity. What you have accomplished over the years has inspired me to push forward with my little company, rls art limited. My father

[Russel L. Snyder] was a well-known artist in Pittsburgh during the 1960’s and 1970’s….In 2000, I formed the small company with my mother and we began selling high-quality prints of his original artwork….My mother recently died, I have retired, and I have such a passion for the artwork, so I am planning to start once again to get the products out to a wider audience. . A couple of years ago I licensed two of the art images to a clothing shop in Greensboro, NC, and they created a limited edition line (50 garments) and sold out almost immediately. I had the fabric printed by a company in Rancho Cucamonga, CA [which has since closed]…. I am now in contact with a new fabric printing company, and they are creating the fabrics from recycled plastic water/pop bottles. Everything is eco-friendly and made in the USA….

It is certainly gratifying for Megan and all of us here to know that her story of starting and growing Sew What? Inc. over the years can serve as inspiration to Cindy and other budding entrepreneurs out there.
