I hope you’re OK? So much has happened these past 12 months, it’s been such a year hasn’t it!
In terms of other things, in January 2020 I realised our website – Honeybee Cloths needed an update, I begun in quiet moments building a new site, while caring for Mum through her chemotherapy and the UK lockdowns. The new site which launches in a couple of days was completed in September 2020, just a few weeks before my Mum – Carol, who’d been receiving treatment for cancer and Lymphoma passed away. For a short while our shop temporarily closed, and the new site was put on hold. Re-opening though is just how Mum would want it – Mum loved seeing the beautiful things customers made from our supplies, and hearing the stories behind them. Constantly encouraging, Carol was thrilled when I set Honeybee Cloths up in 2011, knowing it was a long-held dream of mine being made true. The sturdy table we cut yardage on, is the same one Mum gifted me then. The new site, which is set to be launched in the next couple of days is dedicated to my lovely kind Mum – Carol who will forever be my inspiration, and to Nana who helped me sew my first stitches so many years ago.
