Thought I’d update you all as I needed a rest! In just over two weeks I have gone from having an idea, a vision of what my company should look like to being ready to open my doors. WOW
The response to my idea of having a space where people can come and learn to sew but where the focus is also about having fun and meeting people has been phenomenal. And it’s really motivated me, nice when no-one thinks you’re crazy 🙂
I signed the lease last Monday, moved in this Monday and with lots of help from my fabulous support network we’ve cleaned, painted and moved all the gear in. Don’t worry about the bare walls we’ve got plans for those once the paint is dry. I am like a kid just before Christmas I am so EXCITED!
So here it is Sewing Space. Come and join us you’re always welcome xx
Well I guess this blog has been a bit quiet for a while. You might be wondering why and I can quite happily tell you I’ve been busy 🙂
Since my last blog I have completed my sewing course and I’m waiting for my certificate (me and thousands of teenagers I suspect). I’ve also enrolled on a course to get qualified to teach adults. Seems odd since I’ve been doing that for years, but I believe there’s always something to learn from someone else. Plus more certificates so my kids realise even adults can get awards.
Speaking of my kids, CGG has started telling people “mummy sews for a living” which is cute. I’ll be honest I didn’t know how to talk to a 3 and 5 year old about redundancy, the feelings of loss, uncertainty and the whole horrible situation. So I didn’t. I might be over protective but it felt right. So I guess they’re not really that aware how big a deal this is. And it’s about to get bigger!
Yesterday I signed the lease on an office space. Why? because if you’re going to dream, dream BIG. I get the keys next Monday and first workshops will be in September. Between now and then I need to decorate and furnish, set up a booking system, get all my coaching plans and “how to’s” done. And this is just the beginning, I am so EXCITED! So from Mondaywill be born and I look forward to welcoming you all to the “Social Sewing” experience.
