Makers in Business Episode 8 - Danielle Spurge of The Merriweather Council

In this episode of Makers in Business I talk with Danielle Spurge of The Merriweather Council about how she started her embroidery business and what it's been like since she did.

If you are an Etsy fan, you may recognize Danielle's work as she is frequently featured on the front page. Danielle has worked hard for her success so far and continues to work hard to keep the momentum going. Meanwhile, she's generous in sharing what she's learned. She's been trained as an official Etsy Educator. If you live locally, look for her classes on maximizing the potential of your Etsy shop. And for gorgeous handmade goods, visit her website.

Here's the custom hoop Danielle stitched for me.

The hoops look fantastic in groupings. (I own three!)

I love Danielle's compositions.

Danielle's signature wishbone design.

Custom table numbers for a wedding.

Custom monogram necklaces in Danielle's own "font" which is her handwriting.

The show airs locally in Lowell on LTC Comcast Channel 8 on Tuesdays at 6:30 PM and Thursdays at 8:30. New shows monthly. For more information about Lowell Local Access TV, visit http://LTC.org
