Why Sew Jealous I hear you ask?
The truth is this isn't the first iteration of this business. I started out sewing, making bags and purses and clothes and whilst I loved it, it just involved too much prep work which I loathed!
The stress of full time work, full time study, running my own business, and at the time an undiagnosed condition took its toll on me and I just lost all love for sewing.
Insert lockdown - and like everyone else I wanted to make the most of my new circumstances and learn a new skill. Whilst still working, working from home certainly gave me more time back and I didnt want to waste it so I decided I wanted to try crochet again. Yep again! I cannot tell you how frustrating I found crochet the first time I tried. I decided I was a knitter and quickly left the crochet hooks alone. Anyway..... I was determined to come out of lock down with a new skill and by sheer luck, something just clicked! I was OBSESSED!
And here we are, a few years later.
For me crochet has become such an important part of my life now. It is a fantastic anxiety support for me, and helps to quiet my mind. It brings me so much joy working with bright colours and creating from different fandems and styles. To do this full time now is an absolute dream.
