Welcome to the first of my new series of newsletters bringing you stories from Laura's Loom, and showcasing some of our British Wool.British Made products...
...but first I'd like to ask for your vote!
I have been shortlisted for a 'New Heritage Award' by Blue Patch. This online marketplace promotes sustainable design, ethical fashion, eco-furniture, green gifts, organic & fair trade food from UK-based companies. The 'New Heritage Award' is for businesses using traditional production methods and techniques. All of the finalists have also been entered into the People's Prize, which is your chance to vote for me!
I couldn't have got my business off the ground without huge support from my family and friends, my local community, suppliers and processors, and above all my customers.
Running a small business single-handed is a bit like climbing a mountain - you just have to keep putting one foot in front of the other if you want to get to the top. It can be tough but it is also immensely rewarding. It's worth making the effort to follow a dream, especially when it means you can share the results.
Thank you for helping me climb my mountain!
Voting closes on Sunday September 17th.
