*PLEASE BE AWARE OF PANDEMIC POSTAL DELAYS*

COVID-19: Just Sew Helen is currently trading as normal with no delay in completing orders, although deliveries may take longer than normal to arrive due to postal service delays.

In accordance with UK Government recommendations I have implemented additional hygiene procedures to include additional hand washing, before packaging or handling your orders, and regular cleaning and disinfecting of all equipment and work surfaces.

There are currently no restrictions on items shipped from the UK but due to many countries and cities being in lockdown around the world please allow extra time for your order to reach you.

This may change according to Royal Mail and Government instructions.

Due to the precious & sensitive nature of many of my items I use Royal Mail signed/tracked services to send orders.

I gift wrap all orders with white tissue paper tied with rustic string and can add a personal note should you wish to send an item directly to a recipient, please let me know any details in a message at checkout.

Overseas orders: if I am unable to post to a particular country due to closed borders I will get in contact with you to see how you would like to proceed and, if you wish, can cancel your order and provide a full refund.

I design & (re)create precious memories put together from pretty fabrics as framed sentiments, embroidery hoops, keepsake bears & cushions.

All items can be personalised and made from customers personal fabrics or from Just Sew Helen supplies.

I am happy to discuss custom orders and look forward to hearing from you.

Hand Stitched Applique & Embroidered Bereavement Gifts, Keepsakes & Sentiments.

The Business -
The foundation of my business is the creation of simple, personal & unique textile memory gifts in remembrance of a loved one or following baby loss, offering sympathy or condolences that many find hard to express, all of which can have an impact on emotional wellbeing.

Having worked with pregnancy loss/bereavement for many years as a midwife I aim to provide information on my website around coping with loss & how to offer support to friends & family, both emotionally & practically.

About Me -
I'm a mom of two boys, step mom to two, step-nanny to five, a retired midwife and a seamstress.

My mother taught me to sew from a very young age & I have sewn over the years making clothes and home accessories. More recently I have started designing and creating framed appliqué sentiments and keepsakes made from cherished fabrics.

After the loss of my mother to ovarian cancer and relatives of close friends I found it very difficult to find just the right token or words to offer comfort.

These sad events have been the inspiration to develop personal gifts to give to a friend or relative following a bereavement, or any landmark event, and also the motivation I needed to do something more than just a hobby.
