Helen Bunting

Helen, has been sewing and crafting since she was a young girl, one of her very rememberable first makes was a pair of stretchy shiny purple flares with a matching crop top!! She thought they looked fab!

Although her initial career didn't take her in the direction of sewing or even crafting, she joined the Royal Navy at 18 and it wasn't until her beautiful little girl was born 13years later that she decided forces life was no longer the path she wanted to follow.

With the world as her oyster she decided to re-train in a completely different role..... and that's when Sewphies was born.

She now makes, teaches and sells beautiful lampshades in and around the Midlands, with her future plan is to set up her own online shop.
