Why Stitch in Time?

36595397_478123012638514_6271911364772495360_nMy passion for sewing began at the age of 21, when i received my prize possession: my beautiful, amazing, trusty sewing machine. I have always been a creative person with skills in the performing and visual arts.
For a couple of years I sewed for fun, made presents for family, and experimented with interesting designs. Due to my career teaching drama I did not have lots of time for my beautiful, amazing, trusty machine.

In 2016 I had a laparoscopy operation and was diagnosed with Endometriosis, an excruciatingly painful and mostly incurable illness. The daily struggle with the pain meant I had to have three months off teaching drama as I was unable to keep up with the children, or even keep a smile on my face at times. Shortly after returning to work I was (annoyingly) made redundant.
This is when Stitch in Time HB was born!28157811_1776646062374712_6133474076217311232_n
The name Stitch in Time was inspired by the struggle of this dark time in my life. During a teary moment my Aunt said,
“This is just a Stitch in Time.”
Which, I obviously did not believe at the time as I could not see a light at the end of the tunnel, but now I see her point exactly!
I look back on that time in my life and appreciate how lucky I am that my body has recovered and has reached a point where my Endometriosis is manageable, and out of these dark times came my lovely business where I am able to brighten up people’s lives with lovingly made products.
Each product made by Stitch in Time is a sharing of peace and love.
