My name is Leona Turner and I'm a Mum to three wonderful girlies. When we started our family (crazily 10 years ago!) I stopped work and as a former teacher I think I missed my creative side so I tried lots of different crafts. I loved sewing and making handmade gifts especially embroidery.
I had post natal depression with my youngest two daughters and sewing was my therapy (but not the only one!) I realised that I needed to look after myself to be the Mum I wanted to be and that meant sometimes doing things just for me. Although it was and still is hard to do sometimes.
I felt I wanted to encourage others to look after themselves but not feeling guilty for taking some time out just for them. I wanted to share my love of sewing but also give people the opportunity for a bit of head space. And that’s when Mindful Makers was born 🧵
