Bringing together creative and charitable hands

It's with a heavy heart that I've made the decision to close A Helping Hand Bag. Remember all those times your mother would tell you not to slump? Just one of the many words of wisdom I ignored...like wearing good shoes, washing the dishes right after dinner, writing a prompt thank you note...you get it. Now I'm suffering the consequences with nagging back pain and the search to find relief. Slumping over a sewing machine for 6-8 hours a day is definitely out.

I'm immensely proud of the success of this little shop. I love to sew, I love my customers, and mostly, I loved giving to worthy causes. I'm going to keep my new shop, timeoffwatches.etsy.com because I can do all of the things I loved to do with this shop, just on a smaller scale.

Thank you to my family, friends, and customers for your support in the last 4 years. I can't tell you how much it's meant to me.

    A Helping Hand Bag is the culmination of all my life experiences. I started with a degree in fashion design from Purdue University, owned a drapery business, was a project manager, sewed custom pillows, and now I create and sew here on Etsy!

US Sellers do not have knowledge or control over taxes in other countries. All duties, customs, taxes, and any other costs associated with receiving shipment are the Buyer's responsibility.
