Lockdowns 1, 2 & 3
Who could have guessed what this pandemic would bring! As all small businesses Sew Much Fun has had its challenges! Our response has been varied, a mixture of ‘doing good’, creating new product, redesigning our packaging and launching a new website.
Lockdown No.1 we offered our skills, know-how and sewing community to make scrubs for our local NHS.
We also shared face mask patterns and instructions for free and then we sold them in the shop to hundreds of our local customers.
In between we opened up our shops at a reduced capacity fitting in with the government guidelines.
Lockdown No.2 gave me time to design a long awaited nativity scene which was a great window decoration hit and has led to a smaller hand sewing version which will be on offer in Autumn 2021.
Lockdown No.3 after a bit of a business crisis melt down! We got on with re-designing all our hand sewing and machine sewing products and ensuring our new packaging will be 100 % recyclable and biodegradable. We have then completely overhauled our website with an emphasis on shared knowledge and information alongside an expanding product range. We do hope that you all like what we have done! We feel we now have a ‘learning strategy’ in place that will continually grow and be available to all.
