V is for – Virus

Or Coronavirus - the cause of my pause in business and temporary Etsy shop closure. During this downtime I have put my skills to good use, helping 'Northeast England Sewing For the Front Line' facebook group, making scrub bags and headbands (pictured below) for my local Hospital Sunderland Royal Hospital A & E department. This forced break gave me time to reflect, reassess what I am doing and reorganise my workroom which had just moved to the converted loft in March and was still mostly boxes and bags of fabric, patterns, books and everything else it seems.

After a few weeks and with signs of the lockdown being lifted slightly, and the possibile requirement of wearing face masks, I decided to add face masks to the shop upon its reopening in sets of three, two and singles added to water bottle carriers and hip bags, which has really helped increase sales. This much needed boost is a relief as almost all the events I would have either had a stall at or taken the mobile shop to (see earlier post - On the Road) were cancelled. Although I do miss face to face selling, I do have to earn a living...
