Just Sew Helen's Blog

Hello & welcome to my blog where I will share an insight into my sewing life, values and behind the scenes of Just Sew Helen.  

This blog will show you the topics that inspire my small business including my love of sewing, dressmaking & hand embroidery as well as sewing pattern & fabric inspiration.

You can also find me over on Minerva as a Minerva Brand Ambassador & as a memeber of the Simple Sew Blogger Team.

A New Opportunity

Posted on


Follow my blog with Bloglovin I'm really pleased to have become a new member of the Minerva Crafts Blogger Network (MCBN).  I have been involved in some product reviews over the last few months and my makes go live on their site over the coming weeks and, as a result, I have been invited to become a permanent member of the team. 

I really enjoy doing the product reviews, however, they can be ad hoc and if I am at work when an email lands, I can miss the boat by the time I get home to look through the lovely items. 

The Blogger Network is more structured working on a 3 month schedule and having a regular slot to publish the posts, mine being the 4th Tuesday of each month.  My first post as a new member goes live on the 23rd October 2018.  I am able to choose any items from dressmaking to crafts, Minerva then create a ‘kit list’ that readers can use to buy individual items or the whole kit if they wish to recreate the project.

I hope to use this opportunity to create items within my own niche, in particular baby loss and memory keepsakes.  In turn, when I sell items I donate to an Ovarian Cancer charity, Target Ovarian Cancer.

I am really looking forward to being more involved with the MCBN, making and writing about my work & I am much more productive having a deadline to work to. I plan to organise the projects over the 3 months, choosing a simpler product for the first date thus giving a longer period of time to make a more detailed item or garment.  This timescale also allows time to fulfil any orders I receive.

I share lots of photos of work in progress shots & finished items on all of my social media channels – Instagram, Facebook & Twitter.

Thank you to Minerva for giving me the opportunity to become a member of their Blogger Network.
