Designer Sets Out To Empower Women Entrepreneurs

Her products are currently available online at, and at Elizabeth’s Bookshop and Writing Centre in Akron’s Middlebury neighborhood.

They are also currently for sale at the Kent State University Museum, which is currently featuring an exhibit called “TEXTURES” which explores “Black hair and its important, complex place in the history of African American life and culture.”

“Our products went in before TEXTURES started, but I think it’s very timely,” Street said.
Additionally, she periodically holds DIY crafting classes at the Well CDC’s Compass Coffeeshop in Middlebury.

Street recently won a “very sizeable” grant from Unleashing Potential, which helps small business owners get to the next level.

She’ plans to meet that goal by finding a physical location where she can display and sell her work, where her contractors can gather and where she can hold workshops to help sewers and crafters of all skill levels explore their creativity.
