How to work with Susan Weeks
I am Susan Weeks and embroidery and textile art is my hobby.
As a complete contrast, working with technology has been at the centre of my professional career, and also at the centre of my freelance business.
So after many years working in technology, creating complex computer systems in the automotive industry and global banking, I needed a change! I went through some fairly major life changes, took a career break, travelled and lived in Europe.
Established Online Business Owner
Whilst I was living in France, I set up my own business over 10 years ago. My business is 100% virtual and I have worked with clients around the world.
In the early years of my online business I supported a lot of online business owners with video marketing, email marketing and digital marketing. I was leading projects, leading my clients and guiding them to a successful outcome. Always eager to develop my skills I moved into podcasting, and that is when Stitchery Stories was born!
During the last 3 years I have brought my love and skills in technical training back into my business and have really found my ‘sweet spot’ as they say!
I have spent time as a freelancer, as part of the mentor team for a major freelancer training organisation, FreelanceUniversity. I also develop and deliver technical training for them, on a freelance basis.
Want to work with Susan Weeks?
My business is moving away from service provision, I no longer offer client services.
My business is transitioning into one where I create and sell my online courses. I also offer consultancy, bookable by the hour. This is perfect if you want independent advice, and want to bounce some ideas, or are seeking to ‘pick my brain’ !
You can book me for a Power Hour here.
Also A Successful Podcaster
This is where my podcast really comes into it’s own! I have developed an enthusiastic, global, niche audience. They have a great need for learning and applying online marketing skills, especially the ‘techy’ stuff that they are all afraid of. The pandemic has had a massive impact upon these artists. It is my time to step up, step forward and lead and support my audience. I’m here to help their businesses survive by teaching them practical skills in a no-nonsense, step-by-step way..
It’s fair to say that it is my mission to empower business owners to use online tools and technology to grow their visibility, improve their productivity and generate more revenue. But let’s drill down into a deeper niche. I’m here to teach textile artists and creative entrepreneurs the skills they need to thrive online. And drilling deeper, I teach textile artists how to create and launch an online course. This is the perfect place for me to be. I’m excited where this can go!
I teach textile artists & embroidery experts how to create an online course
I am moving towards launch of several online courses that have all been through a low-key ‘founding members’ launch or have already proved popular within the freelancer community.

As I transition my business, I have a lot of development and changes to make to my online presence. A couple of websites need to be removed, everything needs a refresh. Over the next couple of months my new business will emerge. In the meantime, if there is anything I can help you with please just contact me and I am happy to help where I can.
