I have been saving and working as much as I can to help keep the business running. I love to give back to all my supporters in any way I can, I am offering a free memorial bear to all my supports, as a very big thank you xxx
A little about the crafty stitch
At the crafty stitch, I handmade gifts and memorial items such as bears and blankets. I am also an experienced seamstress, and really enjoy repairing much loved clothing items to extend their life.
I aim to bring a little bit of Love and happiness to everyone, by creating something new and unique to them. Memories forever held within a bear or blanket to cuddle.
Everything is created and completed in my at Home office/studio, space can be an issue in my small dining room. So supplies need to be kept to a minimum until we are able to move into a bigger space (The hubby is not willing to give up the bedroom).
The crafty stitch Started over 10 years ago after the birth of my son Jacob ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️, I started making clothing and soft toys for the children. Eventually I was being asked to make all sorts of things for people and the crafty stitch started to take off.
Unfortunately life and certain events put a hold to the crafty stitch and I had no choice but to retire my sewing machine for awhile. After the breakdown of a 13 year relationship and a lot of troubles, I have been working on rebuilding myself and focusing on my mental health. I started the crafty stitched back up just over a year ago and now business is growing and the demand on my sewing machine continues. I feel it is time to upgrade the machinery and really grow this business to the next level. With that in mind I am seeking help to raise the much-needed funds to expand and purchase the necessary equipment needed to keep up with the demands of the workload. I am saving as much as I can and trying to raise funds myself as well as continuing to work to keep the business going. With the troubles this year has seen with COVID-19, I have been very fortunate to have been able to continue supplying a service to my local community, but now I need a little help getting to the next step.
This crowdfunding will help me to grow the business by supplying much-needed machinery, supplies and legal start-up fees. I really appreciate all the help and support and I would love to give something back to all my supporters. For everyone I would like to offer a £10 gift voucher to my Etsy shop
