Where it all began...
Hello and welcome to Sew Very Pretty UK, Handmade Dog Accessories
My name is Sarah, and I created my little business in September 2019
So here is a little bit about me and how my business was created…
I departed my last workplace back in February 2018 halfway through pregnancy and left with the determination that I wanted a career that would work around family life. At the time, I honestly had no idea what I was going to do but I knew whatever it was, I would give my everything
I created my business name with the notion I would be guided by what people wanted, what was popular and what worked for me. Sew Very Pretty UK being adaptable to well, anything sewing I guess! I inherited my 1st sewing machine from my nan and then the love for sewing began.
Starting a small business has literally blown my mind, there was and is so much more involved than I expected. Its not just about the makes, it’s about the marketing, the advertising, the photography, the design, the accounts, the ordering, invoices, markets, displays, planning ahead, the list goes on and on and on. I am truly fortunate to have some wonderful friends and family who have supported me along the way who I am eternally grateful for. I am learning everyday and watching my business grow is so rewarding
What started with online bunting and aprons soon became dog collars, leads and markets! The market community locally is such a wonderful thing. I have met some friends for life on my journey, we all share the same dream. I like to call us “dreamers”. Even when you are doing well, your mind is automatically engaged in the “what next” Especially during these ever-changing times
So, that is enough about me. Life is short, drink the gin, follow your dreams but most importantly have fun along the way… you never know, you might just like where they take you 😊
Thank you very much for taking the time to read a little bit about my life and business
Stay safe and much love,
