Wearing School Uniform For Home Learning?

School Uniform Friday was ‘a thing’ for many families in one of the previous Lockdowns (losing track at this point!).
Obviously as a school uniform supplier, we would love to hear that all our customers are continuing to wear those jumpers and blazers that we have lovingly embroidered for you! But on a more serious note - are there any benefits to doing this?! Will you be getting your kids to wear their uniform once a week? Or more? Feel free to email us your pictures of home learning in your SpeedStitch purchased uniform if you’d like to feature on our social media. Happy

Lockdown 2.0 v Small Business

Well, it was inevitable really, wasn’t it? We all knew it would probably happen, and it’s not like we don’t know how it goes this time, right?!

Supporting Small Businesses During & After Lockdown

Lockdown - April 2020

These are strange times for sure! Just a few weeks ago we were looking forward to holidays, planning for our busy Back to School season, and getting excited about some new developments we had been planning within the business. Right now, with all the uncertainty that surrounds this global pandemic, it feels like life is on hold and as a small, family business, we simply cannot predict where we will be this time next year. We don’t know how this will affect our business in the future, or whether all the hard work we have put in over the years

Lockdown Survival Tips

To try and remain positive is particularly tough, but perhaps these little tips (we came up with these just one week into Lockdown 1!) might offer a little hope or structure for the weeks ahead.

The closest I’ve come to wearing my name was on an engraved silver chain gifted to me for my Confirmation; I remember not wanting to wear it because it didn’t have the accent over the ‘e’ in my name. The furthest I’d stretch to on this now, is the wearing of an initial as opposed to my full name.
One gorgeous set of products with initials that I’ve come across is the Carolyn Donnelly Eclectic range for Dunnes Stores. She has designed a

The Tote Bag

Be honest…how many of us have had a cupboard full of plastic bags that we swear we will remember to take with us on our next trip to the supermarket, but have ended up forgetting and been inexorably lured into buying yet another bigger, stronger, re-usable one with fancy prints and stronger handles that we vow to leave in the car boot so that we’ll have it for next time (…shamefully raises left hand)?!

This has been me in the past, and the more I think about it, the more guilty I feel. I have however changed my ways and re-discovered The Tote Bag (working at SpeedStitch has made
