June Meet the Maker Featuring Spoonfeather Designs

Today we have the pleasure of introducing you to Heather Spooner from Spoonfeather Designs out of Detroit, Michigan! Heather is a hand-letterer that puts her penmanship on everything from paper to sun hats. Most of her childhood was spent practicing her handwriting. She explains that she, "was always the kid who got asked to make poster for school fundraisers, draw on other students paper bag book covers and design group project." As she grew up friends still continued to ask her to letter fun projects for them, and it seemed like a good business idea to run with!

When we asked Heather to tell us how she named her business she said, "when you have the last name Spooner, you obviously have to use it in your business name! Most of my childhood, people called me Heather Feather, so I thought combining words to play off of my name would be a great way to infuse my personality into my business and help my customers remember my name." She says her favorite part of her creative process is working with clients to create timeless decor pieces.

Spoonfeather Designs is Heather's full time job, and she is constantly working on adding "relevant and interesting products" to her business, including hand lettering classes that just launched this year! Heather has been with us since day one and we just love her thoughtfully made prints, greeting cards, and now globes available in our shop! She welcomes all of you to contact her with custom inquiries at spoonfeatherdesigns@yahoo.com, and you can always shop her goods in our store, or on Etsy too!
