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.

Send a Hug

What strange times we're living in - Lockdown Take 2!

Hugs Lavender Pouches

I'm very fortunate choosing a small business that works from home whilst my husband's company encourages home working at the moment, and our boys are healthy and attending school/college.  Equally, I know many are not so fortunate, are lonely, or are living alone, and the detrimental effects on mental health are sadly immeasurable.

A simple & thoughtful way to let someone know you're thinking of them, especially at a time when you can't visit, is to send a #LetterBox friendly 'Hug' Lavender Pouch directly to the recipient - virtual hugs with a soothing lavender fragrance. 

Being part of the small business community on social media, allows for social interaction and access to a vast array of gorgeous products, too many to mention all in one post!

Presents of Mind Lockdown Hugs Gift Guide details a great selection of pocket friendly Hugs - why not head over and take a look? - there are loads of other great ideas too.

There are lots of ways to support small business & #shopindie for Christmas and a great place to start is #UKGiftHour / #UKGiftAM on Twitter every Saturday & Sunday morning from 9am to 12 noon - loads of stunning gift ideas at your fingertips.

UKGiftAM is also available via Facebook.

Christmas Hugs
