Chester Mum Sets Up Sewing Business

A mum from Chester has set up a business teaching others how to sew after the activity helped her cope with her anxiety following the birth of her daughter, Eloise. reported on how Lyndsey Edge, 34, has taken positive steps to not only benefit her own mental health but to help others too. She’s established Stitch Create Love to help her reach out to others and teach them to sew.

She offers group classes, one-to-one tuition and runs sewing-based social events. Ms Edge told the news provider about how she’s struggled with anxiety her whole life, but that she also suffered from postnatal anxiety after her daughter was born.

Returning to work as a primary school teacher was difficult for her, and at the end of her temporary contract she realised that sewing was the way for her to go.

“I’ve always been interested in crafts but I didn’t realise just how much it could help my anxiety. The whole process of sewing slows you down and cuts out the negative mental chatter. It allows you to reconnect with who you are and restore the balance in your life,” she explained.

Ms Edge stressed that her classes are for anyone who wants to learn to sew, not just for mums. The whole idea behind her approach is to create a relaxed environment where people can pick up this new skill and improve their mental health in the process.

According to charity Anxiety UK, anxiety affects around five in 100 people in the UK and can take many forms.
