I started sewing over lockdown, making headbands, kit bags, scrub hats and masks for the NHS and other key workers. I wanted to continue sewing after the demand for these reduced and so I started Bessie Bobbins. I wanted my business to be as eco-friendly as possible, with no waste. I take things that would otherwise be thrown away, like cloth nappies which are no longer waterproof, and turn them into something new, like mini cloth nappy keyrings!
I have been blessed to have never had a problem in pregnancy or birth and have 2 wonderful boys. I don't take this for granted and understand that I am one of the lucky ones. Tommy's work and research into fertility, pregnancy and birth is vital to ensure more people can be as lucky as I have been.
