I have a well established local business running sewing classes in my garden studio as well as one to one in client’s homes. I also service and repair sewing machines and make bespoke quilts. I’m heavily involved in the local art and maker community and have seen a devastating effect on so many local businesses. I can’t trade sagely in the same way as before, instead of 5 students I can only teach 2, and lots of people are wary or can’t afford to book right now either. There has been a huge downturn in business and I’m worried about making it through the winter. I want to sell vouchers for sewing classes and bespoke quilts to be redeemed at a later date to help my cash flow now and give people something to look forward to as well.
