In this episode, I chat with Meghan Daniel of Crybaby Stitch about embroidering witty sayings, what Fly Girl Fall is, the struggle of selling merch, why Instagram is stressful, and where to get the funkiest home decor.
THINGS WE TALKED ABOUT:
Landing in embroidery after a crazy path of different jobs and college experiences
How embroidering witty sayings is a fun juxtaposition on the medium
Learning embroidery by herself
Having a supportive daughter who is her “cheerleader”
Our drinks of choice- beer vs. wine
Our personal styles and feeling confident to wear something crazy and cool even when your city isn’t ready for it
The struggles of selling merch and dealing with inventory- which is why Meghan uses a site called Bonfire to deal with limited merch runs and preorders
How we both might be doing White Light Night in Baton Rouge this year on November 22

Hey y’all. I got 500 new followers yesterday thanks to the badass giveaway going on by @bonfire 🔥 Just wanted to show my face and say hey to all my new followers! My name is Meghan, I’m 28, New Orleans native but currently living in Baton Rouge. I do mostly hand embroidery but I’m expanding into other fiber arts! I love interior design, true crime, shows about vampires, throwing parties, and dogs. I’m currently working out of a studio space at @fwgallery where I also do custom framing, event organization, and social media management. So happy to have you all here!
