(COVID-19) UPDATE: I am still dispatching orders (on Mondays and Thursdays) during the virus outbreak. I work alone and I'm keeping all work surfaces and cutting tools scrupulously clean. Please expect possible delays via Royal Mail. If anything changes I will update this page.
I hope you are OK. We are OK, we're doing our best to stay positive. Thank you and stay safe.
Only me! Some of you may be wondering why U-Handbag is still here on your computer/device? Not again, you may say! Well, my reasons for staying here are two-fold. As my daughter grows, I feel I must spend more time with her whilst she still wants me to! Running U-Handbag was beginning to encroach on family time. Something had to give, so I thought that if I could do more appearances on the TV selling channel Sewing Quarter, combined with more teaching and more book writing, I could free up time and still make a modest living. This plan went belly-up when, late last year Sewing Quarter sadly announced that it was shutting down. So sad, for everyone! Alongside this, so many of my lovely U-Handbag customers have kindly begged me not to go!
So I have decided to stay put, many of you want me to and U-Handbag is what I know and love! I still need to free up that family time, so I am dispatching 2 days a week and I am running U-Handbag by myself. U-Handbag is very much alive, but she is a trimmer version of her original self.
U-Handbag will specialise in:
- my patterns - and I will continue to design
- some of the products needed to make my designs
- tempting limited edition products that will come and go
- I'm always open to your suggestions, comments and requests
I can't thank my loyal customers enough, where would I be without you? I so appreciate your patience and support.
Big love and hugs,
