Customer Spotlight :: Meredith of Boston Creations

Girl Charlee Customer Spotlight for May is up! This month we are featuring Boston Creations, a Facebook and Etsy shop that sells fashionable infinity scarves. Even cuter, Boston Creations is named after owner Meredith Deschambeau's Boston Terrier, Bostrom, her biggest fan! When Meredith told us her touching story about sewing scarves and starting her own business, we were inspired to reach out to her and share it on our blog. Read about Meredith below and find out how to win an adorable scarf!!
About Meredith

Growing up with a mother and grandmother who are avid sewists, Meredith would "play around" with an antique foot-pumping sewing machine to make little pillows or bags under the watchful eyes of her mentors. She knew that one day she would follow in their footsteps, but didn't really find the drive to sew until recently. After dealing with certain tragedies, she searched for a kind of therapy to cope...and sewing was it! Making infinity scarves helped her heal from her sadness and grow her creativity, and now she can't stop!

A self-proclaimed girly-girl, Meredith LOVES to accessorize with bags, jewelry, and shoes. But when she walked into Anne Taylor one day, she was shocked at the price tag on the infinity scarves. She thought to herself, "I can make this!" And she did! 

Soon, teachers at the school where she teaches first grade were asking for their own infinity scarves. Thus, her little business was established and now she lists her scarves on Etsy and Facebook. She also enjoys sewing PJs, skirts, handbags, and doggy t-shirts--because dogs have to look cute too, you know!
