MEET YOUR INSTRUCTORS: MEG + JOSH

Meg Sutton is the owner of Belle & Union, a retail gift shop and letterpress studio in San Antonio, Texas. It all started in 2012 with a relationship: a Southern art student and a Northern soldier fell in love along the sandy beaches of Tybee Island and the shady moss-draped oaks of Savannah, Georgia. And now, 8 years later, they have a beautiful brick and mortar and studio space in sunny San Antonio, Texas.
