My journey started 5 years ago when I realised sewing helped me control my mental health condition. It was a way of escaping my thoughts and gave me time to process. It became a passion and slowly but shortly I have managed to create myself a brand and move stock into a coffee shop in Hawkshead. The dream is to have my own shop where I can spend more time sewing, creating handmade gifts for people to love and share. With this I will be able to build the life I always dreamt of and hopefully give potential staff the opportunity to help build Lottie love into a well known brand.
