You may remember that back in July we were nominated for the Top Sewing Workshop in the Sew Magazine British Sewing Awards for our Learn to Sew:Back to Basics course. We asked then if you would kindly vote for us and it seems that loads of you did because we've only gone and WON!!!🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉 Whoop Whoop!!
It was such an honour to have even been nominated in this category, the competition was so strong and we were up against some of the big names in the sewing industry. To have won this award is mind blowing and we are simply beyond thrilled to know that so many of you felt our online beginners course was course was a worthy winner and voted for us. THANK YOU SO SO MUCH!! 🤗🤗
Coming out of the pandemic and now heading into a recession and and a cost of living crisis has meant new challenges for us at Start to Stitch HQ this past year. Finding new ways of working and diversifying the business has brought long days and nights and we continue to learn as we go.. So winning this award really does mean the world to us, reinforcing our belief in what we do and why we do it.
Start to Stitch is about so much more than our online sewing courses. When Annie founded Start to Stitch it was on the ethos and core value of being kind and creating community, and this is something that we have worked very hard at maintaining throughout all that we do. The testament of our ethos and values is often found in feedback we receive and in our wonderful Stitch Sewcial Facebook community. Yes we are running a business, and have to make a living, but there is absolutely no reason why this can't be done with kindness, care and joyfulness. Winning this award endorses this and the reason that we choose to work in this way.
The sewing community is truly a wonderful community to be a part of. So thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the votes you cast. And if you have found your way here following our win then thank you for taking the time for coming to see what we are about and reading this post.
